Recovering from Religion Meetup – Morrow Chapter
Location: Starbucks at Barnes and Noble
1939 Mt. Zion Rd
Morrow, GA 30260
It’s the monthly meetup for the Morrow chapter of Recovering from Religion! We will meet to discuss issues directly related to religious indoctrination, struggles faced, and how to better overcome them.
There is no proselytizing of any kind allowed at these meetings. While BN Inc, is a proud partner and facilitator, by no means is this a tool for recruitment. Any donations incurred as a result of these meetings will go directly toward RR efforts. Also, be sure to join the new Meetup group for this chapter.
Thanks so much, and we look forward to seeing you!!!
