Hosting a Jedi service in a physical building

See araisag, there is no need to be scared of the "bad people". Dont hide in your echo chamber. Explore, come out to play. You might learn something.
Kyrin, back off. Stop making this about me.
I was about to suggest asking campuses or whatnot for a place to have a booth, I see that often enough. Or just set up a soap box in a public area. I also see that often enough.
God I need a joint.
Mtwfbwya, ima take a break from the totjo today to centre myself and get this sorted...
If you are looking to do it the most inexpensive way possible use your own backyard or a friends that is big enough that will allow you to call together a group of people. It never hurts to start off small and get feedback of what could be better so you have a building point.

I'd avoid using public buildings in secular countries. I can think of at least one where that'd be completely illegal.

Parks are really, really good though. Because it gives you an opportunity to do meditations. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have my own large plot of property with a building and enough land to put in some amenities (campfire site, 2 Labyrinths of my design, and maybe a small herb garden)...but it would it’s not in the cards atm.

Now we are talking about advertising as a form of recruiting people to the event and by definition a sermon is preaching a scriptural, theological, religious, or moral topic, usually expounding on a type of belief, law, or behavior. Will the Jedi creed be recited at the end? Will there be a call to convert to ways of the force? What is the stance of a Knight preaching a sermon but that Knight is not a member of the clergy? I guess it could be done without the association of TotJO but that has never been clearly stated, so I was wondering, will this be done in the temples name or under its blessing?
Thank you for these questions Kryin, I have actually been contemplating that myself and don't have much of an answer. I guess that comes down to the moral judgement of what it will be by the presenter. That said I still don't know where I would draw the line.
