I forgot to mention in the previous newsletter a couple of days ago that there will be a FreeThinking breakfast in Olathe IHOP (NE corner of 119th & Strang Line, East of I-35) tomorrow, Wed. 8 a.m. Our first breakfast two weeks ago was a lot of fun and chat and folks from a couple of different meetups showed up that we rarely see at meetups in other parts of town. Also, a contributor from KC Faith Walk section Chuck Lunney was there and he plans on attending again tomorrow. Several of us have been involved in Bible Studies at local churches and it looks like a couple of Christians wanted to come and visit with us. I've invited a few ministers to come and hope some of them will be able to make it one day. I pop by their churches occasionally when I am in the area and say hello, reminding them about it and also seeing if they'd like to have some joint action with freethinkers in Kansas City - e.g. we'll have a park/creek clean up with an environmental group in a Lutheran church.
I just got an e-mail from one of the Lutherans (I met him at the environmental group and who had invited Cole Morgan and me to their Bible Study on Thursdays 9:30 which we accepted) that the two of them will not be able to
make it till 9 a.m. so, feel free to show up around that time if you'd
like or at 8 a.m. anyway as this is the regular time and we can catch
up on a lot of other stuff. We normally chat for 2-3 hours there as a regular meetup at a coffee house.
So, if you feel like having a great breakfast and also great chat in the morning, feel free to join in. As always, we talk about whatever comes to your mind - politics, culture, computers, books, philosophy, elections, weather, etc.
Starting in Nov, FreeThinking breakfasts will be on 1st and 3rd Wed of the month in Olathe IHOP at 8 a.m. October has 5 Wednesdays :o) - so we started with the 3rd Wed and this 5th Wed is just a bonus and we are glad our Lutheran contacts can make it.
If someone in other areas of town (Wy/LV, North KC, Midtown, Independence/Blue Springs, Grandview) want to have their own local social events going, e-mail [address removed] and it will be posted to the schedule of www.KCFreeThinkers.org/calendar.htm
. You will be listed as contact person for that event and you can work out details.
