Dear Lynn and John,
Thank you so much for the Hopework email and invitation, and I'd love to come 
for dinner and a learning circle that night!
I'm fairly sure I can come early to help prepare the meal, too.
I look forward to seeing you that Sunday!

Dear Hopework Friends and Philosophy Camp 2010 alumni,

John and I invite you to join us this fall for our first Hopework  
dinner and story circle on Sunday, September 26, from 4:00-7:00 pm.  
For those of you who are new, Hopework is the practice of creating  
spaces for people to get to know and like each other and to find  
renewed hope and purpose with and from each other. Hopework' suppers  
and story circle evenings are a way to reconnect with friends who have  
shared in our work and to meet new acquaintances who share our  
interests. Each month we look forward to greeting Hopework friends,  
Philosophy Camp/Lives Worth Living alumni and fellows, and making new  
friends and acquaintances. This year we will meet on the 4th Sundays  
of most months. Dates of scheduled Hopework dinners are below.  Please  
join us when you can!

As I'm sure you've noticed, the University's Driven to Discover slogan  
has become highly visible in emails, video, and print materials in an  
effort to brand the institution and help position it as a respected  
research university. Last week, after walking home from campus, John  
announced that he had come up with an alternative image that he much  
preferred for his work: Strolling Toward Understanding. I resonate  
with his new image and have to say that it has stuck with me.  
Strolling toward understanding: I like the feeling of breathing easily  
when I imagine strolling toward understanding. It's a strong contrast  
to feeling as if I have to hold my breath when I think Driven to  
Discover. In the last few days I've found myself reflecting on how or  
where in life I might be strolling toward understanding and what this  
new image might illuminate for me. The more I thought about it, the  
more interested I became in also hearing how you are strolling toward  
understanding and what that looks like for you. Join us on the 26th  
and share a story of how this image connects with you!
