This is a good thing for those who miss the social aspects of church life.

 

It's also beneficial for those who feel rejected by family and society in general.

 

From the article in Religious New Service...

 

"That kind of hospitality is especially gratifying in a world that is a long way from fully accepting atheists"

 

Even though I am not very social I see the value in this and other concerns, like...maybe a website where people can share their non-Christian/non-religious leanings, can be of value. In many cases the family will reject us, or at least display rather cool attitudes towards us, and it's refreshing to know their are groups of individuals that think like us and accept us. Having a fixed location to meet with like-minded folks is of value.

You mean... like this one...?

 

To be honest the social side of things (in terms of a meeting place like the house in the article) is of practically no interest to me, but I agree, others will feel very differently.  Whatever floats your proverbial boat, I suppose.
