Have we become too generalized or too specific?

Yes, I know some will say we are just right. OK Little Bear. I have an opinion but that doesn't matter right now.

This is something I posted to Jedi Federation and I realized it applies to us.

If you become too specific you'll have a group that knows more and more about less and less until they eventually know everything about nothing. If you become too inclusive and generalized you'll have a group that knows less and less about more and more until they eventually know nothing about everything.

Is that just in general, or specifically speaking? ;p

So the question begs to be asked, what are we about? The Doctrine? The Doctrine and the Force? Are we trying to be a church, or a Hub for the greater community?

It felt like a Temple of like-minded people when I first arrived, and then the movies hit. Frankly, It hasn't felt remotely church/temple like for years, and has less to do with where we place our focus imo, and more to do with what we tolerate. That's a large part in why more people don't rely upon or trust the clergy....

You simply don't get your cake and eat it too, and when you try, you become a hub that presents itself as a Temple...

Pick one, but stop attempting to be both...

I think you have hit the nail on the head, Zenchi.

We need like minded people but not an echo chamber.

What kind, specifically speaking? We've had quite a few Knights, apprentices and members leave, all for similar reasons. I'd like not to dig dirt, so i'm biting my tongue....

Maybe we need to have an All Call voice meeting on discord. I'm also not a fan of digging dirt, but I think frank discussion is important

Would that be an open chat for all? Or Knights only?

In one of the Knight Meetings we had discussed having an All Call for all members I believe Firewolf was going to lead. Let me check the archives and see what happened
