Would it be definitely better or worse for anyone to move it back an hour to 9E/6P then? I don't want it to be too late for folks on the East coast.

Let's redo this month's meeting next Wednesday the 13th at 9 Eastern/6 Pacific and see how that time slot works out.

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend. It's funny because I will actually be at a prayer meeting in real life during that time.

Bookworm and I had a nice time praying together! It was a great experience. I hope that even more people can make it to the next one. :)

It was very nice, exactly what I had hoped; thank you Catspaw!

But I need to know why no one else made it again. Is it the time, even though still no one has expressed a problem with it, or was it just forgotten?

I honestly don't have an answer for you except we're too busy screwing around in the perishable poop we mess around with to make time for the God in whom we live, move, and have our being.

I think bookworm might be looking for something more specific. Do lots of people have to work Wednesday nights? Other commitments? Is there a specific day of the week or a certain time that would be better for a few people who are really interested in being there? Did people just forget? Most of the people posting in the thread to express interest seem to indicate that they want to make it, so if they didn't, it makes sense to see if there is something fixable. Apathy towards God is a real concern, but that might not be the entire issue here.

I was caught up in spending time with family. I could have been there but I chose to spend it with my sister, who I don't get to hang out with much anymore.

Speaking for myself, I am usually available in the evenings, so the time was not the issue. However, though I'm more often than not free, my availability can be unpredictable. *shrugs*

I'm glad things went well though tonight, =) even with the small turnout.

I was at church for one thing. For another, I am in a situation where I can only get an hour of computer time a day (between 10 and 5). I won't go into all the specifics of it, but suffice it to say that my home life needs prayer. If I could've been there I would've

I was spending time with family, and not screwing around with poop as Dredge so eloquently and rationally assumed.

Am I understanding then that you were all aware the meeting was going on, but were either unable to attend or otherwise consciously chose not to?

That's what I want to hear, if your absence was just because of the circumstances on this particular evening.

OK, I was too busy screwing around in perishable poop to show up. I literally had nothing to do that night and forgot anyway.

Yes, I was aware, but chose not to join.

Okay, this time slot seems to be acceptable then so I'm going to make this the schedule going forward; meetings on the first of each month at 9pm Eastern. That will be the default plan if you don't hear otherwise. If an adjustment is made for a certain month it will be announced.

The next meeting will be Monday, August 1st. PM me if you want to be sent a reminder mail when it's closer.

I will never be around on a Wednesday. Period. Well, not for the next 5 foreseeable years.

That's why I wanted to have it on a date rather than a day (other than the 1st being easy to remember) so it moves around in case some days don't work for some people.
