What we're about

This meetup group is inspired by the enthusiasm of a little girl who once drew a "picture of God" without any of the typical adult inhibitions.

Her story appears in the following TED talk by Ken Robinson: How schools kill creativity (2006)

We encourage people to re-think, re-imagine, re-envision, re-create who or what God is.

Unless we do the work that this little girl was doing, we will never know the answer to that question, not even "in a glass darkly".

If you find "God" to be a bit formidable, contemplate this nice little poem from Leonard Cohen:

..

FUN

It is so much fun
to believe in G-d
You must try it sometime
Try it now
and find out whether
or not
G-d wants you
to believe in Him

~ Leonard Cohen, Book of Longing, 2006, p49.
