What we're about

This group - a combo of a book club/support group - is for those who have left any faith. Meeting with like minded people, this is a chance for us to continue to foster the curiosity that made us question our beliefs in the first place. The goal is threefold: 1) to continue to discuss the big important questions, now through a non-religious lens; 2) to help support those who might be facing backlash for their changing beliefs; 3) to find out how our unique position in the world can be used to its greatest potential!

This is open to people with any religious background and at any stage in their "de-conversion."

TOPIC: Violence, what's it's roll in our lives?

What is Violence, and where are it's limits. The World Health Organization's definition of violence is "the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against oneself, another person, or against a group or community, which either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, maldevelopment, or deprivation."

Is this a good definition?

What roll does violence play in our lives, direct and otherwise. Is violence ever necessary or justified or should one remain a pacifist? Many societies are maintained by violence. Should they be? Is ours maintained by violence or agreement? Are any societies not based on violence or a hybrid with violence?

Those who have left religion have many different experiences; sometimes, those experiences left behind leave us worse for wear. We probably all have a lot of stories, so this is our chance to share them. Whether we just need to laugh, process difficult situations , or are seeking layman's advice, we will break into smaller groups so that everyone has a chance to share. If anything is pressing, or issues are really at a critical moment, please check out the 24/7 hotline from RECOVERING FROM RELIGION: 1-84-I-Doubt-It [masked]).

Location: We will have a Google Hangout/zoom for the meetup. I will post a hangouts link on this page and in our whatsapp so that you can click and join. See you all virtually on Sunday.
