PVS Monthly Meeting/ Discussion Group

This week, we're having a guest speaker (Tanya, who is organizing SANE)... We generally take a few minutes at the beginning of each monthly meeting to plan upcoming PVS community building efforts and events. The general discussions afterwards give members a chance to discuss relevant topics, current events, and explore new ideas.    

Coffee is available for $1 a cup near the circulation desk, but feel free to bring your own beverages and food. Paid parking is available behind and across from the library. The meters accept quarters.

    Hi everyone, we are in the Coolidge Museum on the second floor today. Unfortunately, no food or drinks are allowed in this room.

      I am sorry I didn't see this before the meeting! My humble apologies for jeopardizing the group's status with the library.

      That's alright. We're not in this room often and we did no damage - I'll try to post a warning sooner when I know we'll be in there. Thanks for looking out for us!

      Well put! Sometimes members suggest topics or articles in advance but the discussions are inevitably informal, friendly, and fluid.

      I've been quite surprise at the different roads I have gone down since first getting into the "God Talk". Its "astronomical"­.

    An Jewish/ agnostic friend of mine recently asked me how Christians (that believe in the traditional version of the Christian God) explain why God permits "evil". I couldn't quite remember the "logic" behind something most of us find to be a primary example of illogical thinking. Ran across this article in Free Inquiry:

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.
