I went to the Sunday Assembly the other day and, well, let me tell you...
Here is the link regarding some of the controversy: The Sunday Assembly has a Problem with Atheism
Here is a possible alternative to the Assembly.
Now, onto the event itself.
Daniel Thomas Moran is a poet and author of several books of poetry, and did a reading early in the service. I had a chance to chat with Daniel before the show started, and he's a fairly gut bucket type of guy.

Here is Pippa Evans who is a co-organizer of the Assembly, a comic with a pretty awesome voice as well. Here she is doing a bit called How I'm Trying to Be Better.
Here are a few other pics I took while there.
