Hello Brothers and Sisters,
With the creation of our new Discord Server, we have grown to over 40 members in 1 day. I have already seen amazing conversation and community cohesion, and it warms my heart that we can all unite under the Old Ones.
Having the ability to live-chat opens a number of amazing opportunities for us, and I propose that we do weekly bible-reading sessions.
The weekly sessions will allow us to gather together, read a chapter of our choosing, and discuss our thoughts and feelings with regards to said text. It will also give us a bit of structure which will help with any initial teething issues.
I propose that the first session be held on Friday the 28th of February 2020, at 2300GMT (0000CET, 1800EST, 1700CST, 1500PST, 0900AEST, 0700AWST).
Whilst I appreciate these times are not the most favourable for us all, this is the only way that everyone, no matter where we are in this world can join and partake in the reading. The reason I chose this time is because Friday leads into the weekend, and anyone on the later times will be able to get a good night’s sleep the next day, whilst the people living in the EST time zone are able to get back from school/work and still have some time to prepare before the session.
The question of people not having the bible has also been raised and the simple answer to this is; I will take some high-resolution images of my chosen chapter and post them in the chat for everyone to enjoy. This way everyone, no matter whether; you have and have finished your bible, are still waiting for your bible to arrive, or are on the fence about purchasing one, can enjoy the content so kindly created for us by Wyntre.
This week I will be reading my favourite chapter, Cognitive Dissonance & Doublethink. I chose this chapter as it’s only 6 pages long so will allow us to figure out how to do this properly, but also because it gave me a good chuckle and I believe we all fight Cognitive Dissonance within our lives at one point or another.
I hope to see you all there,
That is not dead, which can eternal lie.
