At our July Meetup we are trying something different – and we need your help! We want your input in a sort of “Town Hall Book Club”.
We are asking you to read the designated article and come prepared to discuss, listen, learn and have some fun. It’s designed to provide fodder for conversation and debate. There is no “test next Friday,” no right answers or required participation, but we would love you to come and share your opinions. This is our first attempt at an evening like this and we expect something between an enlightened discussion and a food fight.
Toby Lester wrote an interesting article for The Atlantic magazine about the emergence of new religions, their interplay with governments and the sociology of religious practices.
Here’s the plan – Read Lester’s article, copy it if you can and bring your questions and comments to the group. The article is titled "Oh Gods!" To view it click here. Then scroll down the page to the article.
Don Leadroot will lead the discussion. Open ended questions will help people talk about themes and how the article relates to deeper issues. We value your participation and hope you will join us July 8. See you there.
As always, we encourage you to RSVP if you plan to attend.
