The Dallas Emergent Cohort seeks to gather people from the Dallas area for conversation, fellowship, encouragement and community as we engage in emerging issues. Regardless of your level of familiarity with the conversation, we invite you to come and join us!


July Cohort - Tuesday, July 14th

A cohort regular, Abby Lowe's brother, Matt (you met met Matt if you were with us in March), will be in town for the July 14th cohort and would love to lead a discussion on a book written by his friend Paul. Original Faith is sort of a collection of Paul’s thoughts on life and faith, refined by his education, life experience and a debilitating illness that has left him bedridden for many years. Matt has offered to even put together some of Paul’s poetry, etc. so people won’t feel like they had to buy the book.

7PM - the Tin Star in Preston Center.

BTW, Commenter Jenny, from last month, asked the following questions that I will re-ask and answer for her here...

I'm a little shy and new situations with new friends make me insecure. I'm going out on a limb here because I know there are probably others like me who'd like to attend. Please don't take offense.

What can we expect at the meeting? We usually talk for a couple of hours about an intended topic, but we let the conversation go where it wants.
How do we find you once we get to Tin Star? Well, we usually find a table wherever one is open for a group of 5-12. Look for the group that isn't a family or a dating couple, the restaurant has an open layout and isn't that large.
Would bringing a child or children be disruptive?
If so, do you have events where those of us lacking child care can bring them along? It's often a loud restaurant, so your kids won't be disruptive. If they can handle a group of friends talking for a couple of hours in a public restaurant, they can handle this.
Do we need to bring money for food and drink? We try to patronize the restaurant in some way. Some get a meal, some just drinks, some nothing at all.
How long does an average get-together last?
Anything else I should know? Not really, it is pretty informal. Will be glad to meet you!
