The current installment of the COEC began meeting in 2007.

We are currently on a "break," for no particular reason, and many little reasons - mostly pertaining to life circumstances. If anyone is interested in calling a meeting, feel free to post on the blog, join the google group (see link below) and send an email, or contact either Nancy (nancykj10@yahoo.com) or Jesse (schroeder.jesse@gmail.com) for more information.

Community Night: Compassion 2.0

Hi cohortians -

This weekend, we will celebrate our faith together in community. We will gather at Jesse & Kellye's house at 5pm on Sunday evening (9/23). I want to share a short section from the book on Compassion that I have just finished reading. Then each person/family will have a chance to share any recent updates, challenges, successes, exciting news or prayer needs. The community will respond with compassion, and we'll eat and drink!

Speaking of eating and drinking.....

Kel and I will provide barbeque shredded beef, coleslaw, and buns to make sandwiches. If you plan to come, please bring a side dish, drink or dessert to share.

Also, I received the materials from Animate: Faith, and so everyone can look at the journal and the facilitator guide that we will be using in upcoming weeks.


Meet & Greet: What does "faith community" mean to you?

Hi everyone -

This Sunday, September 16th, we will meet from 1-3pm at the Global Gallery on North High Street in the Clintonville area. This is an open gathering, and we would love to formally invite all of those individuals who have been following the blog, emails, and conversation from "the fringes" to come for a casual discussion about what exactly "the cohort" is and does.

In addition to meeting new folks, we will also discuss the topic of what a "faith community" means to you. What do you look for in a faith community? What is important to you? Ultimately, we'll be talking about how we approach the cohort every week, and what practices we value in our communal spiritual life.

Hope to see some new folks, and of course all our favorite "oldies" - if you need more information you can email Jesse at schroeder.jesse@gmail.com  or Nancy at nancykj10@yahoo.com
