Our goal is to provide a safe place for those who want to dig deeper into what it means to follow the teachings of Jesus. We discuss controversial topics sometimes but attempt to do so while respecting each others beliefs and boundaries. We are not affiliated with a church and most of us aren't church members. We welcome those who have been harmed by Religious experiences and anyone regardless of how they identify. Dogs are welcome too, sometimes we have more dogs than people!


When and where do you meet?

We have been meeting in the greater New Orleans area since 2018. We are adapting our meetings to the current situation, so when and where we meet have to be flexible.

Is this affiliated with a Church?


Can I invite people to my church at the meeting?

We would rather you not.

Can I express my views?

We welcome everyone's different views. We ask that you don't tell anyone that they are wrong.

This is a discussion where we learn from each other. This is not a place for anyone to give a sermon or a speech.

Here is a great list of logical fallacies we try to avoid which allows us to keeps the conversation engaging and challenging.

Here's another more detailed explanation of logical fallacies.

Do I have to drink beer?

No, in fact quite a few people prefer wine. Non drinkers are welcome to join us as well.

Do I need to bring anything?

No, but most people bring some beer, wine, or some snacks to share. (During the Covid, please just bring your own food and drinks. )

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are welcome but please let us know you want to bring your pet so the proper pet introductions can be made.

Are you sure this isn't a sneaky way to get us into a specific church?

We promise we are not affiliated with a Church.

However we might take up an offering. Just kidding!
