Hi Everybody –
Our chance for a first RNA meet-up!
So far, seven of us RNAers are set to participate in the March for Science https://www.marchforscience.com in DC on April 22. If you plan to be in DC, marching or not, and would like to join us the evening before (Friday April 21) for a get-together, probably in Dupont Circle vicinity, please let Mark Iredell firstname.lastname@example.org know and he’ll put you on the e-list. Also, if you’re not already committed to being with another group during the march itself, please consider joining me and the group from the American Society for Cell Biology; let me know if you’re interested email@example.com.
Two other events to consider as well.
Advisory Board member Karl Peters is co-chairing a conference sponsored by the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science (IRAS), June 24 – July 1. The title: The “Wicked Problem” of Climate Change: What is it doing to us and for us? See http://www.iras.org/2017-conference.html for the conference statement and http://thewickedproblemofclimatechange.weebly.com for full information. The conference venue, Star Island, off the coast of New Hampshire, is a heavenly spot. Full children’s program as well.
And lastly, a request.
The request: 1) Click on the link and scroll through. 2) Send Todd RNAcomments@gmail.com the titles of books that you’ve read and found valuable; it can be one, two, or many. 3) We’ll compile these and then add to the top of the page a rank-ordered list of “Member’s Recommendations.” Should you have a favorite that’s not on the list, let us know! And if you’re moved to annotate your list with a few sentences about why a given book was meaningful to you, that’d be great.
My very best to you all –
President, Religious Naturalist Association
