Invitation to:    Folk School lunch at St. Martin's Table, this coming
Monday, September 29, 11:30 -- 1:00

    The purpose of these weekly lunch meetings is to dig into Gandhi's
saying, "You must be the change you seek in the world."  They are open,
rolling conversations happening throughout this academic year, where people
are free to come when they can, and come at any time between 11:30 and 1:00.

    We are continuously evolving a process that can help these conversations
go well.  Each Monday for the next while we will have a story or a poem that
in one way or another throws light on or raises questions about "being the
change you seek," that will be the centerpiece of the conversation.  Then
the conversation will revolve around this center.

    The meeting is in the Trinity Lutheran Community space upstairs from the
St. Martin's Table restaurant.  Come in the red door in the back. You can
buy your lunch downstairs at St. Martin's Table and bring it up, or you can
brown bag it.

    St. Martin's Table is at 2001 Riverside Avenue.

    And remember the folk school evening with Bernice Johnson on October 2.
I am pasting in the invitation to this gathering below.

Re:    Thursday, October 2, Folk School evening: Bernice Johnson

Place:  St. Martin's Table, 2100 Riverside Avenue, Minneapolis.  (Parking is
available in back.)

Come and hear Bernice Johnson's story of shifts she made in her life after
retirement from a job she had had for 30 years, her taking up teaching
English as a Second Language in warm countries around the world as a winter
diversion, and her heart being captured by the Shan refugees from Burma in

The format of the evening will be that Bernice tells us something about her
journey, and reads one of the stories she has written about the lives of
Shan refugees she has come to know.  This will be followed by an open
discussion of the light these stories throw on "being the change you seek in
the world."

Schedule.      7:00-7:15         Gather, get refreshments (on the house!)
                    7:15-8:00ish     Bernice speaks
