Secular Ministries For Community Outreach

Atheism and a general lack of conformity to major religions has a tendency to be viewed poorly in the public eye. I know from networking and just the usual socializing that those that fit that demographic, as a rule, are unhappy with that notion. 

When you are struggling with money in life, it is churches and ministries that offer hope with food banks and shelters. Secular people are just as capable of organizing a food drive or applying for grants to build shelters, or starting community projects to occupy the free time of budding youth. I can not take responsibility for the idea: all that I know is that there is a Secular Humanist Ministry in Morgantown.

Churches and ministries do good, or, sometimes, what they are taught is good that is not, necessarily. I think we can start a creative, gentle, humanist revolution by requesting government and state funding as well as sponsorship for community enrichment programs. 

The first step is to band together in this endeavor, not just atheists  but those who can accept others of any faith and work next to them to support a better world: Ministries all over the world, dedicated to lowering crime, eliminating hunger and pollution, and educating the masses on morality, logic and reason. 

If the missionaries sent to Africa had been secular, perhaps the spread of disease could have been severely reduced.

But first, lets start at home and show our nation's people (whatever that nation may be) that a particular religion, or any religion at all is not necessary to live in harmony on our planet.

The following video is from the Urban Farming Guys, you can't tell from the video but they are religiously affiliated and the grants they offer are for MINISTRIES ONLY.

As an environmental studies major, it is a core requirement that I take a soil science class, in this class, I discovered this video which outlines the necessity of preserving the land capable of being cultivated, which is why sustainable living practices are so essential.

For a better in depth look for what I am trying to achieve with my sustainable urban farming project, here is a video about Cleveland Botanical Garden's Green Corp program, which runs 6 learning farms in Cleveland and employs 60 teens, yeilding around 15,000 lbs. of produce per growing season.

 Lastly, I would just like to say that my ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life in our country and the planet. It is the age of information and I seek to further that with the secular ministry I have planned. Pamphlets will be constructed that outline issues such as pollution and global warming, the harms of big business, biology, psychology and neuroscience to help understand the way people's interests and habits vary, astronomy and evolution, etc. Each pamphlet will be simply worded and contain a suggested reading list with the address to the local library.

I believe with eyes for a positive change we can make the world a better, friendly place to live. Join me. (=

Lol, well I honestly don't know exactly what I'm going to do with my degree yet. I love scenic painting, so I want to do something with that, but I'm also pretty good at costume design and scenic design. There's just so many different paths I could pursue. But I think that may be a good thing because I could possibly always find some form of work. What do you want to do with your degree? 

And it's been a hectic week, lot's of rehearsal for a cabaret we're going to put on. I'm doing the costumes for a few numbers to there's a lot to do.

Hey there Jenna :) I've always found environmental studies really fascinating myself. Science is really fascinating, but I've always found my skills to be directed more towards the arts. What's your classification? I just became a junior this semester.
