Thanks Linda and I hope you manage to get to a meeting -the more the merrier as they say.
 
As for your comments about changes to the vision- I guess it's semantics but once you start a statement with 'to' it becomes an objective, not a vision.  A vision, to me at least, is simply a picture of how we would like things to be. It's the picture that unifies us as a collection of individuals - some may actively choose to try and achieve the vision but others may not - either way we actually endorse that we would like to live in such a world.
 
It's the mission statement that produces the doing words.
 
Hope you had a great holiday period,
 
Cheers,
Steve.

?We live in a community that is free from religious and irrational bias. People are free to follow their various faiths, however, decisions affecting the community as a whole and individuals within the community are based on rational non-superstitious thinking.?

i would change this slightly.

?To live in a community that is free from religious and irrational bias. Where people are free to follow their various faiths, however, decisions affecting the community as a whole and individuals within the community are based on rational non-superstitious thinking.?

This i think is because we don't live in a world free from religious and irrationality

I'm hoping i can get to a meeting soon.  Have been unable to attend since joining

Hi guys and happy new year,
 
At our last Meetup it was decided that given the growth of our membership it was probably a good time to review where we were heading.  As a first step I took on the task of drafting a new 'About Brisane Atheists' page for our website.
 
So I;ve done that and attached a draft for comment.  It is on the agenda for our January meeting so any feedback would be appreciated before then.
 
Cheers,
Steve
