Giving Up God for Lent
Lent is a time that is traditionally reserved for a type of psychological purging that leads up to the Crucifixion. In light of this, Atheism for Lent seeks to use some of the most potent critiques of Christianity as a type of purifying fire that might help us appreciate and understand Christ’s cry of dereliction on the Cross in a new way. Just as Christ experienced the loss of God on the Cross, so Atheism for Lent invites participants into that desert space traditionally called the dark night of the soul.
Starting on Monday, February 18 each week will consist of five "texts" to read, watch, or listen to, inviting you to engage with various atheistic critiques of faith, religion, and Christianity. If you have questions about the curriculum contact us via email or twitter.
