    "Wonderful. My dad came out as an atheist to my family when I was a child. These resources didn't exist back then. I have to bring him to the next one! I also want to see if I can convince a more progressive friend or two to come. Also, thank you for having us sing together. I miss that."

    "For the first time in a very long time I felt spiritual satisfaction. Since leaving the church I have struggled to find a spiritual community that I didn't feel like an outsider in. Being at Thrive, surrounded by people who have also experienced a significant change in their beliefs, felt like being home."
