Are you interested in discussing your beliefs and your doubts about religion and related topics?
We meet every Tuesday at 6:30-8:00pm CST.
|August 2nd||Psychedelics and Spirituality||Caleb Brunick-Clark|
|August 9th||[TBA]||Contact me if you’re interested in presenting or proposing a topic for discussion!|
Aim at Truth, Humbly, Among Friends
There are always multiple different religious beliefs represented. We share with and challenge each other respectfully. It is truly a wonderful experience to participate in a group aimed at truth and conducted with graciousness towards each other. I can personally say I have gained friends through this group (and ones that strongly disagree with me on important matters no less!).
Snacks and Scholars
Sometimes there’s hot beverages and snacks!
Sometimes there are presentations from published scholars! Pictured below is a UNO Professor of Religious Studies, Dr. John Lyden, who visited to defend his position that Star Wars is a religion.
Most of the time we have folks from all over the world tune in live via Zoom! The diversity of people increases the diversity of perspectives.
We would love to have you!
Being a part of a group like this is truly a joy and represents a hope that, despite the world seeming to become a more and more uncomfortable with disagreement, there is still value in respectful dialogue aimed at airing disagreements in order to reach truth.
We believe friends can genuinely and strongly disagree on important topics. Here’s the photo evidence.
If you want to wrestle with whether certain beliefs are true or just nonsense, there’s no better place than here!
If you’re able to, we’d love to have you join in-person! Our meetings are held here*:
