Time: Wednesday, 9/24 @ 8pm

Where: Starbucks near Latham circle ( 549 Troy Schenectady Rd, Latham NY )

Agenda: Since it was only me and John last time…  The agenda from last time stands:

The only agenda I have, is to talk about a better place to meet for the future.  Maybe a locally owned coffee shop, or a bar, or something like that, so that we can support a local business while we meet, rather than supporting “the man” :) (thanks for bringing it up, Erika).  Also, centrally located to the entire Capital District (ie: Latham or somewhere like that).  Other than that, no agenda, as usual.  Come as you are, be who you are, no strings attached.

I know it’s kind of short notice… but I was really hoping to meet again this Wednesday, and it kept slipping my mind to send out an email on it…  until tonight.  So, I’m giving you all roughly 48 hours notice… that’s not too bad, right?  :)

Time: Wednesday, 9/3 @ 8pm

See you there!

***UPDATE***

(8/3) I just remembered that I’m going to be away this week, so I’m going to reschedule this for next week.  Sorry for the mix up!!! -Curtis

Man, time flies… I thought it had been 2, maybe 3, weeks since we met last.  Turns out it’s been almost 4!!!

I think if you asked anyone that came last time, it was really good.  Sharing some interesting experiences, our thoughts on Postmodernism, and the difference between “normal people” and “church people”…

So, let’s do it again.  Here’s the details:

Time: Wednesday, 8/6 8/13 @ 8pm

Where: Starbucks near Latham circle ( 549 Troy Schenectady Rd, Latham NY )

Agenda: Like last time, NO AGENDA, just bring yourself and your thoughts…

See you there!

UPDATE – 7/4/08

Seems like Wednesday is good for at least a handful of people.  So Wednesday it is:

Time: Wednesday, 7/9 @ 8pm

Where: Starbucks near Latham circle ( 549 Troy Schenectady Rd, Latham NY )

Agenda: NONE, just bring yourself and your thoughts…

Hey everybody.  It’s been too long.  Let’s do this thing.

No book.  No plan.  No agenda.

Just a safe place to talk about what’s on your mind related to God, the Church and Life.

I’d like to setup a meeting for next week, and I’d like to give you all a couple days to vote on the day.  After a day or 2 I’ll firm it up and announce the day.

I’m thinking either Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday of next week (7/7, 8 or 9), at 8pm at the Starbucks by the Latham circle.

Speak now or forever hold your peace!

So it’s been a little while since we’ve all gotten together…  and the last few times we met, there was pretty low turnout.

Is it a coincidence that it started dropping off once I suggested that we read a book together?  I’ve been wondering if maybe that was a bad idea.

I remember the first couple times we met, there was this great energy just from getting together with new people, sharing about our lives and the things that were on our minds.

I’m wondering if maybe that’s more what people want/need, rather than to dive into a book together?

There’s totally no pressure to be a part of this Cohort; it exists solely as a safe place for people to talk about things that matter.  So, when I say that I would LOVE it for more people to come out, it’s because I see value in those conversations, for me, and I want to make a place for that to happen for other people if they’re interested.  Not because I’m trying to guilt/force people into “committing” to another thing they “have to” show up to.  ;)

So, think back to the first couple times we met, when we just shared out thoughts and experiences, and let the conversations take us where they naturally went…  Is that something you’d like to be a part of again?

Leave a comment if you have any thoughts:

Well, it seems that this week is no good for anyone, at least according to the Facebook event I created…

So rather than sit alone at Starbucks tomorrow night, I’ve decided to push it off a week.  :)

See the revised info below; I’ll create a new Facebook event as well:

Next Cohort meeting (#7)

Pick a Date: Wednesday, 4/23 or Thursday, 4/24 Thursday, 5/1
Time: 8pm-11pm
Location: Starbucks in Latham on Route 2 (549 Troy Schenectady Rd Latham, NY)
Bring/Read: Chapter 5 of A Generous Orthodoxy (there’s a lot to chew on with this one, so one chapter should be plenty)

UPDATE: Well, not much response.  So, I’ve picked the date.  Thursday, 4/24 it is!

It’s time to meet again!

Last time there were only 2 of us… It was still a great time, but obviously, the more the merrier.

So for this time, I’m bringing democracy back and letting everyone vote for which day to meet. Here’s my proposal:

Next Cohort meeting (#7)

Pick a Date: Wednesday, 4/23 or Thursday, 4/24
Time: 8pm-11pm
Location: Starbucks in Latham on Route 2 (549 Troy Schenectady Rd Latham, NY)
Bring/Read: Chapter 5 of A Generous Orthodoxy (there’s a lot to chew on with this one, so one chapter should be plenty)

Leave a comment with your vote for the day, and we’ll meet on whichever one seems to work for the most people.

Looking forward to seeing you all again.
