(Secular Perspective July 16-31, 2012)
Every summer an informal group of writers, poets, intellectuals and activists from France and other (mostly French speaking countries) gather together in Lyon and carry on dialogue on various issues confronting humanity for three days from Friday to Sunday. In the first week of July every year. I was invited fir last two years but could not go as I had other engagements. But this year I decided to go as I was given very advance notice.
