It's been a busy day, but we're pleased to report that there are major new additions to the site today, providing more information about what we believe and how we practice our new religion!
- Each of The Thirty Aims of Areté now has its own dedicated page, detailing exactly what we mean by each of the words! Words can mean different things to different people, and we think you'll find it useful to know what we mean when we say we aspire to a particular value.
- A section on our practice of active contemplation is now available! Contemplation isn't the same as prayer or meditation, but it's a little like it, and it's an important part of how Aretéans develop their attributes.
- A section on our holidays has been posted! We have a total of eight major ones, though we're also happy to celebrate other national or cultural holidays too. Technically, one could even say that each Sunday is a special holiday for the Aim of Areté we focus on that week! We just really like celebrating!
Speaking of celebrating, you should come celebrate with us! We're brand new, that means that we're still quite small, but we'll be a little bit larger with you! Our first convocation will be on Sunday, March 20th, at 10:00am PST. If you're interested in coming, we encourage you to invite yourself to the Facebook event you'll find here: https://www.facebook.com/events/167926406928713/
Since we're so small right now, RSVP's can really help us prepare. Being ready for 2 people is quite a bit different than being ready for 20 or 200 people! Please don't be shy though, we'd love to meet you, even if you haven't RSVP'd. Keep in mind that even if you can't make it this week, we'll be having a convocation at 10am every Sunday from here on out! We hope to meet you soon, and as always:
Be excellent to each other, and party on dudes!
