Hello RNA people –
Our “mission statement” reads as follows:
The Religious Naturalist Association (RNA) is a non-profit corporation formed in the summer of 2014 to create a worldwide “home” for those of us who self-identify as religious naturalists. Our stated purpose is to “encourage the development and spread the awareness” of the religious naturalist orientation.
I just looked at the latest RNA membership list, and we’ve reached 398 members from 48 states and 21 countries.
This inspires us to do something for the first time: Encourage each of you to reach out to person(s) you know – friends, relatives, colleagues — who might resonate with the RN orientation, and encourage them to check out the website. Here’s a skeletal email that you could use, modify, or replace:
I’m a member of an organization called the Religious Naturalist Association (RNA), and it occurs to me that this orientation might be something that would be of interest to you. The website is https://religious-naturalist-association.org, and membership is free.
The states we’re missing are Idaho and Nebraska, so if you know of any candidates in those, you get a bonus reward* for recruiting them.
Let’s see if we can break into the 400’s and perhaps into the “closing-in-on-500” range! And thanks to all of you who participate.
Hope you are enjoying your summer (or winter for our other-hemisphere folks)
With warmest regards to you all –
