Hello again, Lynn!  I've got another retreat for most of the weekend, but am 
trying to work it out so that this dinner happens for me, too!  REALLY looking 
forward to it.  Thanks, and unless I let you know otherwise, I'll see you 
around 4pm!

Dear Hopework Friends,

I hope your holidays were merry and the new year started in good  
health. I am gladdened by the steadily increasing length of the days,  
which is becoming appreciable. Today has an additional 25 minutes of  
daylight over Dec. 21. By January 31, we will have another 33 minutes  
of daylight. I take unreasonable comfort in knowing that the earth  
remains steady on her path around the sun, even as record high  
temperatures in January suggest rapidly changing weather patterns on  
the planet.

Hopework's monthly circle and supper begins again this Sunday from  
4:00-7:30 PM. I am eager to reconnect and to hear where your journey's  
are taking you. Please join John and me on Sunday for a simple meal,  
then a circle to share hopes and possibilities for bringing something  
new to those large or small places where our lives meet the world. Put  
voice to what you know is possible, share the "gaps" you observe  
between how things are and how you would like them to be, the actions  
that call you to stay inside your hopes, and the shifts of vision that  
occur as you meet the challenges on your journey. Together we will  
witness each other's possibilities, nurture connections and  
friendships, and celebrate the steps we take on our journeys.

January Hopework Supper and Circle

Date: Sunday, January 22, 2011.

RSVP: Please let us know by Saturday night (1/21) how many plan to  
attend. Call or email if you have any questions. I have room for about  
12 people around the table (and at least 20 if we move it out of the  

Time: Arrive at 4:00 pm (or at 3:00 pm if you would like to visit and  
be on my cooking and setup team). The meal will begin at 4:30 pm. We  
usually finish telling stories and cleaning up about 7:30 pm.

Menu: Bring a dish or a favorite beverage to share. I'll provide a  
main dish (usually vegetarian) and will make coffee and offer my  
assortment of teas.

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.

January through April circles and suppers will be on the 4th Sundays  
of each month. Please join us when you can!

Future dates:
January 22
February 26
March 25
April 22
