Friendly Chat

This is our monthly meeting at which you can share your stories and hear stories from others who are just like you.

We don't allow preaching. This is about your personal journey and how you're living it.

We'll talk about mostly anything that is of a concern for you. We have a few basic topics, but we're not limited to the following:

  • How has religion hurt you?
  • How has religion hurt someone you love or is close to you?
  • How has your life improved since letting go of religion?

We encourage you to support the business at which we are meeting by purchasing something, but that's not required.

We hope to see you there!

    I wanted to suggest some possible topics for discussion that may be of interest to attendees at our next friendly chat:

    How successfully have you reconciled your religious past to your present life? What degree of influence does your religious past still have on your planning for your future?

    Has guilt been an issue for you? What types of things do you feel guilty about? Do you consider yourself a judgmental person?

    How did your religious involvement affect your sense of self-esteem? In what ways do you now feel superior/inferior to other people?

    What were you taught about emotions in your religion? What effect do you think your religious involvement had on your ability to achieve emotional intimacy? How do you think your religion shaped what you learned about sexuality?

    Feel free to add other topics that are of interest to you. Any of the above questions could also be a good jumping-off point for a constructive dialogue on the discussion board.

    Hi all! I won't be able to make this one due to a wedding! No, not mine, but some Christian friends. Yey! For this meeting, I'll be leaving you in the very capable hands of Bob, our co-leader.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
