We have posted these general Q&As for your perusal. Want to help with our re-organization? Contact us!
Our "Gatherings" are simply good old fashioned public and private informative meetings, discussions, lectures, presentations, speeches, sermons and more. Events relate to one or more areas regarding the improvement of the mental, physical and Spiritual condition of ourselves and the community.... including social, Faith based and businesses institutions.
We are always seeking Good Positive Factual information that can be shared. Lead organizers/presenters of our various events come from a variety of vetted backgrounds.
Below is our Q.&A. regarding "Community Gatherings".
Q. Where are Gatherings held?
A. In any type of building or even outdoors as appropriate.
* NOTE: Some advanced training events related to self defense, cyber/computing, aviation and other offerings may require a background check, per local, national and international law.
The latest updates on cyber security /technology and more from local and national experts.
Group training regarding all forms of self defense.
During election season, we will sponsor political forums and offer equal time.
From building a house, to car maintenance ... we can arrange such a Gathering.
Spiritual - Religious
Note: The largest amount of questions are regarding Spiritual/Faith based Gatherings connected to some community Ministry projects. Below are a top Q.& A. posts.
Q. If you could sum it up in one sentence, what is your primary Spiritual belief?
A. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Q. Do you believe in “G-d”. Are you all a religion?
A. The term is generic. We "believe G-d". There is a difference. If need be for factual reference/informative debate, we will invoke the "ism" where it properly fits.
Q. What about prophets of God?
A. Many "prophets", known and unknown have come and gone within the human family. We should learn the best that we can from our study of them.
Q. What about Prayer/Meditation?
A. “The Kingdom of God is within you.” So Yes, we believe in Prayer/Meditation.
Q. What about Tithing/Charity?
A. Collective giving is a very Ancient practice of community giving and sharing.
Q. What about visiting Holy Sites and making Pilgrimages?
A. Yes! We must keep history alive and pay honor to our Ancestors (past leaders) worthy of such.
Q. Do Gatherings have workshops on Jesus?
A. Thank you for your call! Yes. We cover all aspects of historical religious terms and figures. With each presentation,we cover the historical, religious and mythical.

Min. Pak (He is overseas.) He agreed to sponsor translations of key words from Latin, Hebrew and Aramaic via some extremely old books he has access too. It takes about 2 weeks and all is done by hand, with references.. old school style. :-) Use the contact page and list the words you need. I will get in touch with you.
Remember, read with a clear and objective mind. Use a dictionary and maps. Take your time. Validate with other sincere scholars & teachers.
I will continue to expand this Q. & A.
Again, we are transitioning as we formalize a few matters. We would love your input.
Contact me by clicking here. I will be glad to offer a detailed informative speech or participate in helpful and informative debate on this Q&A.
Note: I am seeking Partnership and Affiliation development help. We have Blessed with technical/communication resources that would bear consideration for a "seat at the table". Amen.
