TED Talk and Discussion on the Bridge Between Science and Religion at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Silver City

Sunday, July 30 at 10 AM, 3845 North Swan Street. "Reality Reconciles Science and Religion" In this TED Talk from June 2014, evolutionary theologian Michael Dowd bridges science and religion with a healthy dose of pragmatism based on "reality". Rev. Dowd suggests that what people used to call God is a personification of what science calls Reality. In other words, reality is God 2.0. Dowd and his wife, Connie Barlow, an acclaimed science writer and evolutionary educator, travel North America promoting the inspiring side of science, religious naturalism, and what they call "one-story spirituality". His 2009 book, Thank God for Evolution, was endorsed by six Nobel Prize-winning scientists, noted skeptics, and by religious leaders across the spectrum. Doug Abbott will moderate and will lead the discussion. There will be coffee and conversation after the service and visitors are always welcome.

GRANT COUNTY, NM — The New Mexico Department of Veterans Services (DVS) Silver City office has moved to a new location.

DVS Veterans Service Officer Bradley Brock's office is now located in the Village of Santa Clara at the former National Guard Armory Building, located at 11990 U.S. Highway 180 East. The building was donated to the village last month by the New Mexico National Guard.

As with all sixteen DVS field offices statewide, walk-ins are welcome—but veterans, spouses, or eligible widows of deceased veterans needing assistance with VA or state veterans' benefits are encouraged to schedule an appointment by contacting Mr. Brock at bradleyA.brock@state.nm.us or (575) 912-3166.

"This new location provides us a better opportunity to serve the veterans and their dependents in Grant, Luna, and Hidalgo Counties," said DVS Secretary Jack Fox. "It offers easier access, has plenty of parking, and should make for a better experience for those who need our services."

According to the latest data from the VA, approximately 6,400 veterans live in the tri-county area.
