UPDATE: 13/2/23 Kieron has very kindly offered to go and check this out for us this Sunday. Also, I emailed them to ask if it would really be a no holds barred discussion, and he has replied affirmatively. I'll post his full email on the discussion post.If anyone would like to go along with Kieron this week as an exploratory visit, then please RSVP here, but otherwise we will wait to hear back and then decide as a group how to proceed with this.
Hi there, I'm Jeremy and I'm involved in a meetup group called Connected. It's run by Christians and we want to encourage intelligent discussion and debate among people of various beliefs. We're about to start a new series called "God on Trial" and are hoping for quite a few people of different viewpoints to come and join the discussion. It would be great if some of you would like to come along. Feel free to advertise it to your members if you think that would be appropriate.
Each week we are discussing a different topic:
Feb 17th: "No evidence. Dear God - mind speaking up?"
Feb 24th: "It's the C21st. Dear God - are you relevant any more?"
March 3rd: "Life hurts. Dear God - do you care?"
March 10th: "Rules, rules, rules. Dear God - are you a killjoy?"
March 17th: "Hell, fire and brimstone. Dear God - are you a sadist?"
March 24th: "We're all trying our best. Dear God - why so exclusive?"
More info can be found on our meetup page. Please RSVP here if you'd like to come along and we'll let the Connected group know.
PRICE: Free ( Let's hope they don't want our souls ;-)) Just kidding, it's actually REALLY refreshing isn't it, that religious people want to hear other opinions and maybe even the 'E' word? ...E..Ev..evidence?? Seriously though, I must say I'm impressed by this group for at least trying ...and it'll be an interesting experience, no doubt!
