Heyo! It went well, the main reason I went (an actor named Nathan Barnatt) was kicked out three hours into the first day though.

Steph, what a sweet greeting.

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.See More
