Cigars and Theology: Friday Edition

  • Feb 7, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Heather's House

Greetings, friends!  Our last meeting seems like such a long time ago . . . sorry about that.  Holidays and travel requirements had us stretched a bit, but we're finally able to make our next get together official.  I've listed my place, tentatively, for our meeting spot.  If, however, someone would be willing and excited to host us, please let me know and I'll change the location.  Depending on the weather, if we're also able to light-up a cigar or two, even better.   

Please remember to bring your questions, drinks, etc.--our typical, loosely structured format will continue to have its way, which depends on your preparation and participation.  Finally, here's a thought that you may wish to co-opt for this discussion:  Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, why do you believe what you do?  What are the specific reasons for the beliefs that you have?  Have you had a "supernatural" experience, or have you not?  Do you believe you hear a divine being speak to you, or have you been unable to hear anything at all?  Was there one or two events that caused a kind of paradigm shift in your life?  Have you mainly relied on evidence, scientific or other to lead you to where you are?  If you wouldn't mind sharing the answers to some of these questions, I'm sure that I will not be the only person who's delighted to hear them.  Personally, I feel that my beliefs are almost instinctual, so I take for granted the specific reasons that I feel may have caused or catalyzed them. When pressed, and if I'm honest, I find that the specifics aren't so easily put into words.  

We are excited to see you all once again!

Grace and truth, 

Eric

    This meeting was one of the most compelling of all the others that I have attended so far. I am truly blessed to be a part of this community.

      I couldn't agree more. I left with a mind and soul full of thoughts and processing. Great stuff!

    Decided against the distance to travel from Leander tonight. :(

    Would love to join you guys and have very much been missing the group! I have a dinner at 6:30 but will see about possibly coming late.

    I might be able to host at my place. Is Leander too far for everyone? (Pretty cozy house with a few seating areas, including outside porch.)
