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.

Planning Meeting - Sun Sept 8

Hi fellow Cohortions - 

Just an invitation and reminder about our upcoming "planning meeting." (This Sunday, 4pm, at Global Gallery 3535 N High

We have never been a group known for highly creative names (who remembers "Super Fun Nights???") but we we call it what it is: A meeting to plan - What we will do - Where we'll gather - And when we think it might happen (thankfully its easy to edit Google calendar!) 

Perhaps you are a recent attendee to our gatherings. Maybe you've been with the group for years. Either way, we all come together and share our ideas, bring what we have to the table (or calendar), offer our time and our homes and our resources, for the purpose of being a community of Emergence. 


In preparation, I would invite you to consider:

- where are you in your life, in your heart? what do you bring to the cohort? maybe the answer is fullness, or emptiness, or most likely something in between. but we each bring something unique. 

- what gatherings have we done before that were especially a blessing to you? maybe we should do more of that, whatever that was. 

- do you have an idea for something new? a topic, a book, a writer, a guest speaker, an activity? Many of the things we do, were born out of our own creative chance. 

- on a more practical level, are you willing to host or lead a gathering? if so, what day? Lets put it on the calendar! 

As always, it'll be a blessing to see everyone, and hopefully plan some exciting gatherings and activities for the coming season. 

If you can't make it, feel free to respond to this email with any thoughts or ideas you have, and any days you would like to lead or host a gathering.
