This photograph may not seem particularly outstanding but it is historic! It’s the first photo taken of a Not Church Online gathering, April 19, 2020–a whole new and potentially very expansive concept for what started here in this “tiny coastal town of La Mision on Mexico’s Baja peninsula,” as TIME magazine called it shortly after it started in March of 2012.* That article “The Rise of the Nones,” which was referred to on that week’s cover, can also be read here under “articles.”
It’s not of the first Not Church online gathering, that was Not Church Norte on March 23, a couple of weeks before, but it hadn’t quite landed on us that these are historic times so there’s no photo documentation.
In alignment with this month’s theme of “everything changes,” APRIL Not Church is moving to APRIL 19, the 3rd Sunday of the month! (just this time)
Between an anticipated Zoom overload from Easter Sunday church services and many other opportunities this weekend, including Andrea Bocelli’s 10AM concert, we have changed the date!
All are welcome. Please let us know if you’d like the link…Just send a PM on Facebook
We look forward to seeing you all on the 19th.
The march 25th gathering of Not Church Norte will be gathering virtually by Zoom, this Wednesday, March 25th at 5 pm.

Erin said it best…What a ‘blessing’ to share our time together as we explored ‘compassion.’ “Wow.” It was another really great, inspiring Not Church.
And here is a link to the Inspirations page where you will find excerpts from Kathy, Ron, Teena, Molly & Arthur. Unfortunately, we haven’t yet arranged to record our gatherings, so we don’t have a sampling of Ross’s awesome selections. But keep checking back…
The next Not Church gathering will be Sunday, October 13th.
