Hoping to find a meeting of the minds and a comfortable place for dialogue.
Yes, as an educator, I realize there are often many "right" answers. I can be opinionated, but appreciate greatly the opinions of others as well.
I am, even though it has taken some time to be able to "come out" and stand strong in my beliefs. There's always room for growth, learning and change.
This has been an interesting discussion that takes me way back to the college days and philosophy classes. I am not as familiar as others in thegroup, but am looking forward to the learning and discussion process. It's going to be a great learning experience to explore these and make me stronger in my arguments and communication of beliefs.
I was looking for groups on Meetup, which my son introduced me to, and found the group through search topics.
I always enjoy the meetings and the company. The conversations are stimulating, the venues are comfortable, and the topics are of interest to me. I am proud to be associated with this meetup group.
Thanks so much. I know how busy u r. if u can just let us know when you have an idea of a date. Thanks, hope u had a nice Thanksgiving. xo Hili <3
I know its difficult w the holidays to fit everything in. Is there any chance you know when u r planning to do the next book club? If I do miss It , I also have a VERY Challenging book to suggest for the next group and I hope people will try to be open to it. anyway. I am sorry , dont want this to be any pressure, just like to know whats happening so I can make plans accordingly.
Hi Anita, I have to go to my Mom on Dec. 16 to 21 . I know u cant make any special arrangement, but i was hoping book group would meet after that time??
Anita, I am so grateful to have found this group, and you are doing a great job giving the meetings direction and purpose. Thank you
You bring an certain organization and structure to the meetings and pleasant demeanor. It is certainly not easy to mesh the diverse outlooks of group members, the group concept being based on a negative. A negative is not bad, it just means we have to base our outlook on something of substance, be it science, possibly materialism or just plain common sense.
Anita -- Did you see my message about hitching a ride?
Also, I'm very sorry I was a no-show this evening. I had a busy day and forgot. Begging forgiveness,
Anita, thanks for taking over for Dave. I think you will discover that the membership will be there for you when you need anything. Feel free to let me know as well.
