    Ok, well I say we do it and whoever shows up, shows up. We have to start somewhere, right? When: June 28, 11 am. Where: Area just north of LBJ. @bmwill1983, do you feel comfortable helping choose a venue since you live in that area?

    • Works for me. Let me know where to be and I will be there. 🙂

    • Yay!

    • Chris replied 4 years ago

      I don’t think I’ll be back in town by then, but if I am, I’ll come by. Is there a location set yet?

    • CJ replied 4 years ago

      How about right at the end of LBJ? There’s a Starbucks and a Cracker Barrel next to Grapevine Mills. More east there’s an IHOP on Beltline between Marsh and Midway.

    • Mandy replied 4 years ago

      I vote for the IHOP!

    • Scott replied 4 years ago

      I just found this group and this thread, but I’d like to try to come. That IHOP is fairly close to me. Are complete newbies welcome?

    • CJ replied 4 years ago

      Due to an unforeseen family circumstance I have a couple of kids looking at me with goo goo eyes and telling me that if I don’t take them to see Inside Out tomorrow at 12:30 they can’t go. Would it be possible to meet at 10:00 instead of 11:00? You can all harangue me unmercifully if you would like. I deserve it.

    • Mandy replied 4 years ago

      Hey there everone. It’s ok with me to meet at 10. So @elizabethdavey, @bmwill1983, @splodie, @cdunning, @mahifish I hope to see you all at the IHOP on Beltline between Marsh and Midway at 10 am tomorrow!

    • Unfortunately it looks like I’m not going to make it to this meeting after all. 🙁 But I will be with you in thought and spirit and definitely try for the next meeting. Please let me know how it goes.

      @Scott, this is our first meeting, so we are all newbies! I hope you do show up.

    Hi Everyone, I’ve been checking out the posts and I think it would be great to try to get together on the last Sunday of this month, the 28th and start from there. We could try for about 11 am (not too early, not too late). It seems that many people live north of Dallas, so we could start checking out venues in that area. What do you guys…[Read more]

    • That date would be good for me. The area is perfect, but I’m probably a little biased, since I live in Addison 🙂

    Hey guys, hot off the press is the new start up guide, which might help you once you have had chance to plan your first meeting! Happy reading 🙂 https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByIJknu5qjs_ckoyc2Zjc2UtaGQwaThvcUFBZnVSeTJrVEFv/view?usp=sharing

  • CJ posted an update in the group Group logo of Dallas, TXDallas, TX 4 years, 1 month ago

    Are we pretty much all north of 635?

  • Chris posted an update in the group Group logo of Dallas, TXDallas, TX 4 years, 1 month ago

    I’m out in the suburbs north of Dallas, and would like to get involved!

  • Jacqueline posted an update in the group Group logo of Dallas, TXDallas, TX 4 years, 1 month ago

    Hey guys! This is great that there’s so many people keen to get involved!

    Would be super if you’d be up for organising a meet-up to connect with one another and seeing the best way to get the ball rolling. Who’s up for suggesting a time and place?

    Have you had chance to read the start-up roadmap? Hopefully helpful for you!…[Read more]

    • I’m available either Saturday afternoons or Sundays from mid-morning (10:30ish, maybe) to mid-afternoon. Since CJ’s out of town until the 21st, how about the 27th or 28th? I think trying to meet someplace centrally located would make sense. I’d offer our condo’s meeting room but we have absolutely no guest parking. Anyone have any ideas for…[Read more]

    • I think for a first meeting, a coffee house would work fine. I’m pretty flexible on schedule over the summer but will be out of town the first 2 weeks of July.

  • Jonathan D. posted an update in the group Group logo of Dallas, TXDallas, TX 4 years, 1 month ago

    I, too, would like to get involved if possible!

  • Elizabeth Davey posted an update in the group Group logo of Dallas, TXDallas, TX 4 years, 1 month ago

    Hi All,
    I am in central Dallas and I am very interested in participating and helping any way I can.

  • Brent posted an update in the group Group logo of Dallas, TXDallas, TX 4 years, 1 month ago

    Hi all, I live in Addison and I’d like to be involved! As someone who grew up going to church three days per week, I have to say there’s something to the community aspect of religion that is worthwhile and affirming. So, it would be great to see a secular humanist alternative to promote the values I’ve come to believe in 🙂

  • Treon Kranz posted an update in the group Group logo of Dallas, TXDallas, TX 4 years, 1 month ago

    I live in Dallas area and would love to meet up for coffee and see where I can make a difference. Let me know!

    • Ahh, awesome @treonkranz! And welcome to the group! How did you find us?

      @mandy, we have another “Sunday Morning Coffee” friend…. This could be the start of something awesome in Dallas! 🙂

    • I found Sunday Assembly thru an article about it coming to Dallas and was thrilled. I was just waiting until March for the first one. There are loads of people from Dallas, Frisco, Plano, etc that are looking for a place to form community. I am in town all week ( I travel for my job) and I can meet any morning. thanks @jacquelinegunn

    • I am in California until June 21, but I am available after that.

  • Jacqueline posted an update in the group Group logo of Dallas, TXDallas, TX 4 years, 2 months ago

    Hey @mandy, @yogaclubdfw, @splodie and @noel! How’s it going?

    Thanks so much for being here- and for sharing your thoughts on Sunday Assembly- its really interesting to read.

    We’d LOVE to see a Sunday Assembly up and running in Dallas, and one of the things we’ve found to be the best thing get get things up and running is for interested people…[Read more]

    • Hi there. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Sounds great, Jacqueline. Let`s do it! Just tell me when and where. Sunday morning obviously works for me. We can call it “Sunday Morning Coffee” until we get things off the ground for actual Assembly!

    • Hi, I’m interested in community, family, friends, and giving back. I’m from North Dallas and never been religious, which has, unfortunately, made me feel like I don’t have a community to relate to. I have recently moved back “home” after living abroad for over 9 years so I am unfamiliar with the local agnostic groups in town, but Sunday…[Read more]

      • Thanks for sharing Mandy! @noel and @splodie – would you like to do a little intro to yourselves too?

        • I just realised I missed off @yogaclubdfw on that list above too- Alex, what is it that interests you about Sunday Assembly? 🙂

          • Simply: I like the idea. A community that is not reliant upon intangibles but rather just on community. Seems pretty positive and inclusive to me.

        • I’m CJ from Lewisville. Essentially a native to the Metroplex – a friend once called me a naturalized Texan. I come from a large family, been married 25 years, two children,one grandchild who isn’t spoiled rotten at all. I am interested in a gathering of people who are not patronizing, who do not browbeat others for their beliefs but rather who…[Read more]

  • CJ replied to the topic Sunday Assembly in Dallas? in the forum Group logo of Dallas, TXDallas 4 years, 3 months ago

    Is there any indication that the existence of the very active Fellowship of Freethought here in Dallas might be hindering the creation of a Sunday Assembly? Perhaps the population of atheists/freethinkers who are “out” enough to participate in something like this isn’t large enough to support two organizations that are so similar.

    Just a thought…[Read more]
