Scripture, Science, and Appeals to Authority
The appeal to authority has always been a necessity in logic and debate. It only becomes a fallacy when it’s an appeal to an inappropriate authority. As we wend our way through the wicked problems of our modern age, we need our sharpest logical tools at hand. Meanwhile, casual debaters love to accuse others of using the appeal to authority fallacy while simultaneously using it themselves. Today we’ll explore where authority fits in our reasoning process, and how to use it wisely to navigate this post-fact era that seems to drag on. –Rev. Fa Jun, Minister
This service will be both held at the Fellowship for in-person participation and streamed online for remote participation.

To make our world better, each of us must celebrate and share our unique gifts to nurture our planet. As curious, spiritually independent people, our Fellowship strives to provide an open and supportive environment to explore the creativity, strength, and wisdom within the diverse experiences and aspirations of each of us. We find joy and meaning in such a community. And by working together, we strengthen our connections.
We are a Welcoming Congregation, intentionally and openly taking steps to welcome into our community people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
