In Reason We Trust

Supporting Our Goals

Ways to support the goals of the LFF

1)    Be the good person that you are and also be open about your atheism.

  1. When appropriate wear symbols that identify your beliefs (for example the atheist A, or T-shirts of free thought organizations).
  2. If someone asks you what church you go to, don’t get angry or shy, just matter-of-factly say you don’t go to church because you don’t believe in god.
  3. If someone publishes a letter or article in the Peninsula Clarion that unfairly denigrates non-believers, write a letter to the editor explaining why you disagree.

2)    Help out at our volunteer opportunities where LFF members work together for some local charity.  Also, find charitable projects that the LFF can get involved in and help our volunteer coordinator to arrange for our participation.  For example; sponsoring a team for a walk-a-thon or a clean-up campaign.  (Although not local, micro lender Kiva.org has teams and the Atheist team is currently the top earner!)

3)    Promote our group by displaying one of our car magnets on your vehicle.  (Click here for information on obtaining one.)

4)    Start a free thought/atheist/agnostic group at your workplace if appropriate, especially if there are religious groups already in place.

5)    Read free thought books and educate yourself about diverse religions so you are well informed and can make well-reasoned arguments. For example:

  1. Godless by Dan Barker
  2. Why I am not a Christian(an essay) by Bertrand Russell
  3. The Age of Reason, by Thomas Paine
  4. Letter to a Christian Nation, by Sam Harris
  5. Freethinkers – A History of American Secularism, by Susan Jacoby
  6. Consider joining our book discussion group.

6)    Join us at LFF social functions.  This may seem like it is too much fun to be helpful, but remember that there are many non-religious people on the Kenai Peninsula who feel isolated by their lack of belief.  Going to a potluck party, picnic, monthly meeting, book club meeting or movie club showing would not just be fun for you, but it would be your way of offering support to others who need to see that they are not alone.

7)    Participate in discussions on our Facebook page and comment and/or contribute to our blog on our website.

8)    Join the LFF (pay dues) and other organizations with related objectives (American Humanist AssociationACLUFFRFSecular Coalition, etc.)
