Sorry folks, for doing the drive by thing again. Amidst all the turmoil of this pandemic, I have found myself needing to find new employment, so I've had little room in my head for being here.

DW is now having some doubts about the church. She has always been a very social person, she needs a lot more connection to others than I do. She has been a stay at home mom for the past 24 years or so. She has volunteered with the kids school and with community theater/music here and there, but the vast majority of her social outlet is the church.

My question is: How can I help her find new meaning and community? The church for all of its failings (in my mind anyway) does an excellent job of placing you into a turn key community wherever you go. Its the McDonald's of human connection.

It seems to me somebody posted a website that is designed to help people connect to others based on interest, but I can't seem to find that post. Does anybody know what that is off the top of their head?

Sounds like Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/

I have found a community with these people: https://www.saltlakeoasis.org/

The current apocalypse is making community pretty difficult to find and develop.

Thanks Hagoth! This was exactly what I was looking for.
