405: Bart has a new community idea

A letter this week from a listener who says he’s hungry for community with like-minded secular people is just the latest one like it. But this one couldn’t have come at a better time, or landed on more fertile soil.

Two Sundays ago, Bart Campolo and a team of like-minded people held their first content-driven gathering at his new house in Cincinnati. The theme of the event was, ‘Paying Attention.’ They have decided to hold these meetings once every 2 weeks, with a different theme each week. Bart has a hunch that their material may be of interest to the wider Humanize Me community, and his team are excited to share their format.

In this episode, producer John Wright reads Phil’s letter, and Bart answers by talking about what they’re doing in Cincinnati and what he thinks may be of use to the wider community. If you’d like to read the letter Bart sent out to local friends describing the vision for the gatherings, go to bartcampolo.org/2019/02/letter.
