Why do we sometimes feel more connected in our relationships than at other times? Perhaps we sometimes find it easy and exciting to spend time with our loved ones—but sometimes, especially when things don't according to plan, we feel incapable of connecting in conversations. We then feel distant from those we love most. What if the answer to remaining connected in relationships has been right under our nose—or, rather, right inside our head all along? Join us to learn about the power of relational connectivity – joy!

After all, many of the things they say simply make no sense. Our guest will examine the ideas of several modern atheists and a few atheists of the past: Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, Victor Stenger, Paul Kurtz, Peter Singer, Alex Rosenberg, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Bertrand Russell, and Friedrich Nietzsche—to name a few. Many of them are well-known and highly regarded, but does everything they say really make sense? Is their case for atheism sound? Join us to find out!
