TED TALKS – "What Time Is It On Mars? "Nagin Cox is a first-generation Martian. As a spacecraft engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Cox works on the team that manages the United States’ rovers on Mars. But working a 9-to-5 on another planet — whose day is 40 minutes longer than Earth’s — has particular, often comical challenges.
On My Path – The path to spiritual richness requires both inward work, connecting to the spirit of life and love within us, and outward work, connecting to that same spirit in others. Deepen and enrich your journey in the company of other pilgrims as we explore our connection to the divine. Newcomers are always welcome.
Take a moment this week to show your gratitude to the ones you love.

Harried Reasoners The Other Wes Moore
The Quarterly Outreach Recipient for January, February, and March is Camp Quest Texas (a 501-C-3) where our own Marissa Broome worked as a camp counselor last summer..
The original Camp Quest was first held in 1996, the idea originating with Edwin Kagin. From 1996 until 2002 Camp Quest was operated by the Free Inquiry Group, Inc. (FIG) of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Since that time it has been operated by Camp Quest, Inc., an independent 501(c)(3) educational non-profit.
Camp Quest Texas was founded in August of 2009 with the first Camp Quest Texas day camp. It was expanded to a weeklong residential camp in the summer of 2010, and continues this year!
The purpose of Camp Quest is to provide children of freethinking parents a residential summer camp dedicated to improving the human condition through rational inquiry, critical and creative thinking, scientific method, self-respect, ethics, competency, democracy, free speech, and the separation of religion and government guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.
