September 26, 2003 To: Folk School folks From: John Wallace 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. September 25, 2003 To: Folk School folks From: Lynn Englund and John Wallace 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 Thailand. 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."
