I am now on the Secular Student Alliance speaker’s bureau. If your student group is associated with the SSA, I’ll come speak on your campus for free!
Here is the press release:
Secular Student Alliance Speakers Bureau Encourages Dialogue with Rev. Jonathan Weyer
Submitted by Lyz on Sat, 2009-09-05 04:04.
The Secular Student Alliance is pleased to announce that we have added the Reverend Jonathan Weyer to our Speakers Bureau. While Rev. Weyer is an ordained orthodox minister, he has an uncommon penchant for fostering dialogue and cooperation between the religious and the nonreligious.
Rev. Jonathan Weyer is a self described religious nutjob who lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife Wendy, three kids and a cat. He is a campus minister at The Ohio State University with the CCO-The Cloister and is an ordained minister with the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. Along with Ashley Paramore, board member of the SSA, he planned a discussion with Hemant Mehta that won a Multicultural award from the Ohio State University. He loves bringing together believers, nonbelievers, skeptics, atheists, and doubters to discuss why God calls people to a lifestyle of doubt. In his spare time, he loves to write, read and drink hard cider. He also maintains a blog for the Thomas Society at http://www.thomas2026.wordpress.com.
Rev. Weyer is available to speak on the following topics.
How to cooperate with religious groups
A Chaplain to Pirates: My life among the Pastafarians (the story of how Ashley and I started working together)
Creating a blogging world for Christians and Atheists
Understanding how Christians view the world
Atheist “Bible Studies”
Addressing objections to God’s existence from a Christian point of view
Understanding American Christianity
Why God calls us to be Doubters and Skeptics
