We're back with our Atheist friends Colleen and Rebecca. We get into a conversation around communal liturgies, having community, the connection of all things, the benefits of religion, and what fills the void of religion when we leave.

EPISODE 082: Part 2: A Man Loves a Woman, an Atheist Marries a Christian: Dave and Grace Kwon

We jump right back into it with Grace continuing her story of what it was like letting her Christian friends know about her relationship with Dave, the baby eating Atheist.

Ron was born and raised on the Indianapolis' east side to an interesting kind of Christian home.  My father was a working class Immanuel Kant, and my mother a sharp-tongued Voltaire who was, and still is, cynical towards organized religion...
