Saturday Conversations

TOPIC:

Spirituality.

With many people identifying as "spiritual but not religious" it raises many questions about the nature of spirituality and religiousness.


Questions:

1. What is spirituality? What does it mean for someone or something to be "spiritual"?
2. What is the purpose of spiritual beliefs? What are they intended to do?
3. What is religion? What does it mean to be religious? How does that differ from being spiritual?
4. What is the purpose of a religion? What is a religion intended to do?
5. Does religion require spirituality? Does spirituality require religion?
4. Does spirituality mean something different within the context of religion vs. outside the context of religion?


Location and Price:

Upstairs there are many tables and chairs where people can gather and eat. If it's a nice day out, we may sit out on the covered balcony. As always there is a suggested, but by no means necessary, $2 donation which goes towards helping cover the costs of the meetup.

    I have wanted to attend so many of these conversations but I either forget or get busy with something else so I don't ever RSVP. I'd like to break that trend and RSVP today. Hope to see you tomorrow :-)

    Reconsidering my choice of first meetups. :p

    Perhaps we might warm up with something less polarized... say, whether or not Hitler would be considered a "great man."

    And yes, I'm aware of Godwin's Law.

    Compare Spirituality as related to religion in contrast to spirituality as related to
    homo sapiens.
