Slow day

by Matthew Bartlett @ 10:27 pm

My church is fun. I talked to some people there. One person I talked to is currently reading Ovid’s Metamorphoses and Genesis concurrently. Another is a probation officer who cares about restorative justice. Someone else spends their time studying Southern Baptists. D and I have kicked around the idea of having a series of brown bag sessions. The idea would be for parishioners who’re working on interesting things, or reading interesting things, to give short presentations followed by general discussion. This would be a. interesting, b. improve community connections and c. counter the fractured nature of our lives.

    Wise Tim McK used to be part of some group that gave ‘papers’ about thinks like this around a dinner. Ask him about it eh.

    Cheers. I’ll ask him. It sounds a little bit like Wine & Theory. Dave the Vicar reckons the same purpose could be served by increased inviting-each-other-for-dinner-ness.
