A Prayer for Atheists

I became an atheist in 1980.  I wrote this “prayer” in 1991.

Some atheists will take strong and vocal exception to my using
the word “prayer” in the same sentence as “atheist.”  Perhaps
they have not yet let go of a belief they say they don't have.

  1. I'm not sure how sharing is tracked, so I'm posting to let you know that I shared this on the FB page of a music colleague and atheist for whom I think it will resonate.
