As luck would have it I start attending bible study the second to last session before they take a break until May. As even more luck would have it the last session is this Saturday. The same day I have plans to attend what I joke to be my actual religion – Opening Day with MLS (Major League Soccer.)
We are season ticket holders for our local team and because we live 100 miles from the stadium going to a game is an all day thing. Even though the game is early it is not early enough to be back for Saturday’s Bible Study.
I realized this on Sunday (right after I told someone I would totally be at the next bible study.) I was just going to skip it but it was actually on my mind all day yesterday so I returned an email welcoming me to the church that also happened to be from someone holding a bible study group.
After a few phone calls today I have all the info I need and am going to head to a different bible study group; which bring me to a decision I need to make.
Full disclosure or not? Do I tell everyone I am an Atheist and why I am there/what I am doing? If so, do I tell at the beginning? The end? Or when the time seems right?
I don’t really know what to do here. I don’t want to misrepresent myself but I have had people question why even tell anyone unless they ask? I have been thinking about this since yesterday also and it is another reason I thought about just skipping the whole thing this week.
Hopefully I can figure it out in the next 4 hours.
