Summer MeetUps Church for Atheists (and agnostics and the rest)

Who cares about summer? We'll just continue our MeetUps! 

(by the way, we're going to have a summer celebration party, on July 20th. Check it out here )

We'll meet in the ObA and there's opportunity for drinks in Vappiano OR in Hanneke's Boom, afterwards (hey, and you can drink your beer even during the talk, by buying it in LaPlace)

This is how we did the Socratic Method last time, I think it’s good to continue with that:

* Read the text + one round of first impressions, thoughts, ideas
* Identify the life-themes in the first impressions, like: fear, anger, identity, surprise
* As a group, pick one of the life-themes to discuss further.
* Make the life-theme into a question, that starts with something like: ‘have you ever experienced….’ and have the group come up with personal experiences.

—Break—

* Pick one particular story and highlight it - why did somebody (re)act the way she/he did, what would you do?
* Try to find something to learn/ you will do differently

At the 'Church for Atheists (and agnostics and the rest)', we meet to 'share life, discuss its questions and become the people we want to be'. Join up with us!

Remember: NO evangelism, doctrines or final answers, NO rituals, devotion or spiritual commitments, NO endless theoretical philosophical conversations BUT open group discussion, inspiration and shared effort in becoming the people we want to be.

    I came here to say the same thing Renee. Now that Holland came through :), that's unmissable. It would be great if the meeting could be rescheduled, I think it would be the best for everyone.
