Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation that celebrates life. Our motto: live better, help often, wonder more. On December 6th, we are having a fabulous celebration of life. We will sing some pop songs, listen to a poetry reading, and have a guest speaker. Our guest speaker is Dr. Pauline Barmby, an associate professor in the Physics and Astronomy department at the University of Western Ontario. She is on the Canadian Astronomical Society's board of directors. We are looking forward to hearing about all the astronomy that she can fit into 20 minutes!
