Alabama Freethought's next Potluck & Program gathering will be Sunday, November 17th at our Lake Hypatia Advance. Click here for a map to Lake Hypatia.
Our speaker will be Mark Gooch, commercial photographer from Birmingham, Al who has been honored by The National Endowment for the Humanities, The National Endowment for the Arts, and The Alabama State Arts Council. He photographs people for advertising agencies, magazines and design firms throughout the U.S. Gooch works hard to achieve the fresh, informal images for which he has been known for 33 years, since 1980. Mark is a member of The Birmingham Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends also know as Quakers. As one of our country's oldest religions, Quakerism differs from other religions in a number of ways. (Not the least of these is the fact that agnostics are welcome in their meeting.) Mr. Gooch will speak about the origins, tenets and practices of the Society of Friends, as the Quakers call themselves, and entertain your questions. Do come and join the conversation!
