NTCOF's February service marked NTCOF's 22nd birthday to the day. Our very first service happened on February 5th of 1995! We had birthday cake generously supplied by Brad! YUM!!
The February service was our usual variety of "food for thought" and a presentation on a very "religious" topic: that of "Good Neighbors." We considered how inadequate even the New Testament's teachings are on this subject and then explored the questions of "Who Is My Neighbor" and how neighborliness works and on what it depends, as well as how it can become distorted and damaged. More about the February 2017 service and other past services HERE in our forum.
Next month's service will be on March 5th. We plan a presentation then on "Heresy." Where once it was persecuted and heretics murdered, the plurality of religious viewpoints and traditions today has virtually institutionalized it. As usual, we'll have other things too. It will be fun! As we have been and plan to for the rest of 2017, we will meet at the Comfort Inn DFW Airport North. The service starts at 10:30 sharp but come early as most of us do for coffee (and usually snacks — you can bring some!) and conversation.
Have kids? Bring them too as we offer free childcare and "Sunday School" which is aimed at helping our younger Freethinkers cope with the challenges of growing up by learning to ask questions instead of just being spoon-fed "the answers." If they're too young for that, we'll look after and entertain them. We want them to have fun too! Children of all ages need to learn that Freethinking is exciting, important, and absolutely "normal." In fact, Freethought is extraordinary!
