College and young adult community for ages 18-30
Thursdays | 6:30pm | Urban Hive
We are a dialogue centric group where everyone has a role to play and something to contribute. We focus on having open, hard and sometimes awkward conversations, even with those of opposing viewpoints.
We meet every Thursday night at Urban Hive in Downtown Sacramento at 6:30pm. You can also follow us on Instagram at @please_elaborate to stay up to date on everything going on in PE!
Our house rules
- We do speak with kindness and humility.
- We do admit when we are wrong or don’t know the answer.
- We do hold opinions loosely and are comfortable having our minds changed.
- We do research our opinions and know what we believe and why we believe it.
- We don’t interrupt. Everyone gets a valid hearing.
- We don’t assume anything.
- We don’t exclude anyone.
To mature our faith and understanding of God and each other through hard conversations (Proverbs 25:5), reexamination of Scripture (Romans 12:2 and Acts 17:11) and active participation in the world (Luke 10:25-37).
Please elaborate on that.
Through conversation (John 11:21-27), Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16) and acts of social justice (John 8:1-11), we aim to develop a deeper understanding of who God is and what he is saying in our world today. We want to be slow to speak (James 1:19), quick to listen (James 1:19), open to having our minds changed (2 Timothy 2:7, Acts 9:1-19) comfortable abandoning previous ways of thinking as a result of new information (John 3:1-21), able to love our neighbor regardless of his/her/their beliefs, ethnicity, sexuality, status or background (1 Peter 3:15). We will love all, not just with our words, but with our actions (Hebrews 13:16) We will respond to our salvation with works of goodness and justice (James 2:14-17). We will serve the poor and the marginalized (Matthew 25:31-40). We will listen to all (Proverbs 17:27, 18:2). We will love all (Mark 12:31, Galatians 3:28). We will be better tomorrow by putting in the work today (Psalm 1:1-3).
