you for your Winter Solstice Drive to The Bridge for Youth. We will
put your donation to use to help young people in need.
Since our founding in 1970, The
Bridge for Youth has served thousands of runaway and homeless youth
and their families. From emergency shelter and family counseling to
supportive housing for youth living on their own, we offer innovative
and effective solutions for youth in crisis.
at The Bridge for Youth we see heartbreak and tragedy every day. But
we also see miracles - of hope and love and renewal. Youth and
families who are able to negotiate their differences, make a fresh
start and forge stronger connections with each other. Youth who were
homeless and disconnected finding their way off the street, finishing
school, working and building a stable life. We are honored to be
part of this work.
Thank you for helping us. Your
contribution will go directly to provide a full range of 24-hour
directly accessible services to youth and families in our community:
24-hour crisis counseling, emergency shelter, medical services,
family counseling, street outreach, and transitional and permanent
housing for homeless youth.
behalf of all of at The Bridge for Youth, thank you for caring and
commitment to our community's young people.
Thank you so much! Your group is so wonderful and entertaining.
Thank you for a great night of food and entertainment.
While it may seem like a contradiction, Minnesota Atheists, along with Trinity United Methodist Church, have organized a secular bible study. By taking a purely secular approach, we seek to provide a safe environment for both sides to engage in dialog, experience different approaches, and focus on the history and different cultural contexts of the bible. If you are interested, please join the Secular Bible Study Meetup Group
. By joining the group, you'll be able to see pictures of who you will be dialoging with and you can maintain communications through their message board.

We produced four programs in
the past two months. In November, James
Zimmerman interviewed Grant Steves in two programs titled "Inerrancy: The
Christian Text and Christian Fundamentalism Why?" In December, Grant Steves conducted two interviews
titled, "Lynn Fellman as Artist and Lynn Fellman as DNA Artist." If you would like to help on the cable
program or sponsor the program on your city or have ideas for a future program
please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

our November meeting we announced that we were not going to renew our
contract with KTNF AM 950 radio due to cost. Instead, we were going
to create a live podcast of our program, which would cost us almost
nothing. Now it looks like we're going to have the best of
did not want to lose us, so they made a lower, counter-offer, which
we accepted. We have signed a contract to continue for the first six
months of 2009.
KNTF would like to charge us the full rate again after those six
months. The only way we can do this is to find a co-sponsor who will
pay for half. With that in mind, we are open to experimenting, by
changing our show into an "Atheist-Theist News Hour" and
finding a religious co-sponsor.
