Evolution Sunday

Remember that Evolution Sunday is coming up a week from today, on February 11. If you're not familiar with Evolution Sunday, see the Clergy Letter Project. Here's some information from the website:

On 11 February 2007 hundreds of congregations from all portions of the country and a host of denominations will come together to discuss the compatibility of religion and science. For far too long, strident voices, in the name of Christianity, have been claiming that people must choose between religion and modern science. More than 10,000 Christian clergy have already signed The Clergy Letter demonstrating that this is a false dichotomy. Now, on the 198th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, many of these leaders will bring this message to their congregations through sermons and/or discussion groups. Together, participating religious leaders will be making the statement that religion and science are not adversaries. And, together, they will be elevating the quality of the national debate on this topic.

Red State Rabble is reporting that the number of congregations participating in Evolution Sunday has increased over 20% since last year.

Does anyone think we have even the most remote chance of getting one of Lassen County's churches to participate in this event?
