Monthly Meeting

For this meeting we are fortunate to have James Joiner, NAU faculty member of the Philosophy Department, join us for a discussion of the intersection of philosophy and religion. James' area of academic specialization is the philosophy of religion and epistemology, which deals with what knowledge is and how it can be obtained. He will also talk about the current trends in the college student body with regard to religion, why students take philosophy, how is religion addressed in the philosophy classroom, etc. James will also offer insight into establishing a secular community. Following the discussion James will join us in casual conversation.

Three of our members are attending a meeting on July 18 of the formation of a local chapter of the Sandra Day O'Connor House and Speak Out AZ. Barbara Warren will give us a report of this at this meeting, after which we will briefly discuss if we want to form an alliance with this new group.

The meeting format will be our usual pot luck, BYOB social. Hosts will provide a combination of "make your own" sandwiches - deli meats, cheeses, fixings and pulled pork, plus non alcoholic drinks. Bring light items to supplement... salads/vegetables/desserts.

The address of the event is

Ron Krumm & Barbara Warren residence

1155 E High Desert Lane, Cottonwood, AZ

Should be a very interesting meeting!

    I'm happy that we will be associating ourselves with O'Connor house, I can detect no negatives in this, only positives. The meeting was outstanding in my opinion. A hearty welcome to those who were new. Enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship.

    Hoping for a great turnout July 20. Watch for directions later from Ron M. Plenty of easy parking at the house. Use the main entry or a side entry - whatever is closest and easiest from where you park. More details later re: food.

    Why is the third word in the Bible a form of "Allah?"
    How about that God-sanctioned human sacrifice in Lev. 27:28-29?
    After Jesus was gone, the apostles became communists.
    The N.T. made it clear (>30 places) that Jesus meant to return within the lifetime of his own generation.
    By July 20 we'll be back in the Seattle area (actually Renton, about 20 miles southeast), But I'll be online
