Life After Belief Group – [Recovering From Religion]

November 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

For more information, please see the national “Recovering From Religion” Website: https://www.recoveringfromreligion.org/

Who We Are:

Recovering from Religion – [Life After Belief Groups] meet for support, encouragement and growth on the process of living life without supernatural belief. Our core concerns are Community, Charting a New Course, Compassion and Coming Out. [Read more about these below.]

Many in this Secular Community Group are still in various stages of recovery from religion and are processing the feelings, thoughts and struggles of leaving a religious community behind. From those who are attending their first “secular/atheist” group ever and have fears and concerns of being “found out” to those who have been on this journey for a longer time.

We are a Diverse and Inclusive Secular Community.

Atheist, Humanist, Non-Religious, Agnostic, Free-Thinker, Anti-Theist, Spiritual But Not Religious, Naturist, Curious But Still with Some Faith, etc.

From younger families to singles, from baby boomers to teenagers and kids, we are diverse and welcoming having those who identify as LGBTQ, Straight, Polyamorous, etc.

Whatever identifier you choose, whatever stage you are in…you are welcome here!

The RSVP is just for head count, so please feel free to join us without an RSVP as well. We have new attendees at almost every meeting, so if you haven’t come yet…you will fit right in! We host 10-20 people on a typical group night.

Don’t let childcare stop you from attending, our teenage kids are available to assist if needed. If needed, please e-mail or text Tiffany or I at the contact information listed below.

And yes…we welcome those that can’t make it on time…so even if an hour late, drop in on us, we just enjoy having you there to share your thoughts and friendship.

Charles & Tiffany Hill’s House in Hilliard, OH.

Recovering From Religion – Life After Belief Groups

Community.

To be a space where former religious individuals and families can find recovery, support, encouragement, friendships and a safe-place to discuss and live-out their new-found secular values that are no longer based on supernatural belief. To truly learn to care for one another and support each other through this journey of wonder we call life and to do this in community with others.

Charting a New Course.

To be a community where we learn from a broad-range of ideas, concepts and philosophies based on reason, rationality, science and other pursuits of knowledge as we form a new individualistic “worldview.” We learn best in community and a broad-range of ideals as we seek out where our individual ideals/morals/worldview can find a starting point and hopefully continue to evolve as we seek our best selves in this life. We value your input and voice!

Compassion.

To be a place where we seek to model values of compassion, love and service as models of living a life of being “Good Without the Need for a God.” We seek to make a difference in our world through acts of love, social justice, equality and compassion for those who are marginalized, discriminated against or find themselves in a place of needing basic physical necessities such as clothing, food, clean water, medicine or other needs of life that we ourselves enjoy.

Coming Out.

To be a space that will help those who choose to “come out” publicly deal with the issues that might come with this decision. Also, to support those who don’t feel the need, desire or who are not ready yet to come out publicly to others. It’s your personal journey, and while some have “come out” many others have not, we are here to support you in this journey that many find difficult at times.
