September Chapter Meeting Minutes

Posted By Brandon Reddell, Tuesday, October 7, 2014
Meeting Minutes, Houston-Area ASA Chapter
Second Chapter meeting, September 10, 2014 12-2 PM at Jason’s Deli in Rice Village
Attending: Brandon Reddell, William Sikkima, Ed Nelson, Scott Robinson
We had lunch and discussed the Chapter goals. Then Brandon led our discussion of David Wilcox’ article "Our Genetic Prehistory: Did Genes Make Us Human?" from the June, 2014 PSCF. We all learned a lot about this aspect of the creation, which we hope will make us better evangelists.
In our business meeting we decided several things:
1. We will meet monthly, on the second Saturday of each month, from 12-2 PM.
2. We’ll meet at restaurants, but will seek a college venue to meet at.
3. Our next meeting will be the same format as this one – lunch and prayer & planning, followed by a science-faith discussion of a PSCF article.
4. William will moderate our next meeting’s discussion. He'll poll the members this week to decide on an article.
We also discussed what to put on the Chapter website. We want these sections:
  • Home page – lists our chapter goals, announcements, maybe list the active members
  • Prayer page – lists prayer requests for the chapter as a whole and for individuals. These are our Chapter prayer needs:
    • Prayer for this chapter and for us to make a difference
    • Contacts with college students about science-faith issues
    • Getting on a college campus and involving faculty members from a college in the area
  • Events page – lists our meetings and special science-faith events in the Houston area
    • Dr. James Tour of Rice University will be speaking about science-faith issues at 7:30 PM on Sept. 20th at First Evangelical Lutheran Church at 1311 Holman (at Caroline, 1 mi. south of downtown)
  • Chapter page – chapter business
    • Chapter goals
    • Chapter plans
    • Minutes of meetings like this
    • List of the members, with photos and bios (maybe)
Action items to which we committed:
  • Scott will write up this summary and send it out.
  • Brandon will post these minutes on the Chapter site, and make a start at building up the site as described below
  • William will create a Facebook page for the Houston Chapter, with a link to the Chapter website, and he’ll post the same items there that Brandon posts on the Chapter site.
  • William will ask his friends at Rice if some of them would want to join us. He’ll also check on possibilities of meeting on the Rice campus.
  • Scott will follow up with James Jennings about meeting at restaurants near the HBU campus, or on the HBU campus.
Yours in Christ,
Scott Robinson
