The reboot of the Atlanta Christian Mysticism Meetup is underway! We have secured a location and scheduled a date & time for our first meeting, of what I hope will become a monthly occurrence.

The Meetup will convene at the Alcove Coffee & Tea Café, 4135 Lavista Rd, Tucker, GA 30084. Alcove is very conveniently located just 2/10 of a mile inside the perimeter off of I-285 exit 37 (LaVista Road exit). We’ll meet on Wednesday, February 2 at 7 PM. To help get the conversation rolling, I hope to have a suggested topic of discussion for each monthly meetup; the topic for this meeting is “What is Christian mysticism and why does it matter?” There is no cost for the Meetup, although if you could contribute a dollar to help pay for the monthly fee to, that would be great (and also plan on buying a cup of tea or coffee while you’re here).

Everyone is welcome, regardless of your spiritual, religious or denominational identity. All we ask is that everyone attending recognize that the topic is Christian mysticism, and that our purpose is to share information and understanding and hopefully build friendships: we’re not here to convert anyone to anything, and so we ask that everyone remain respectful of each other, even when we disagree. Thank you for your consideration on this matter.

Please come to the Meetup! If you attended any of the original Atlanta Christian Mysticism Meetups back in 2005-6, you’ll know how special these meetings can be.
