Dear Hopework Friends, January's Hopework circle and supper was a wonderful mix of long-time friends, new faces, and delightful stories. We lingered long past our usual ending time as as the conversation flowed. It was a very satisfying launch to Hopework activities in 2013. February's Hopework supper and story circle will be held Sunday, February 24. Our topic remains sharing how we are navigating our journey in the flux of life. If you haven't attended a Hopework supper in a while, February's a great time to share what's new in your life. Bring a friend; all are welcome. In the context of the constant change and flow around us, we rely on a variety of devices to guide our decisions and actions. We often must often make them "on the fly" and often with little certainty of the outcome we desire or knowledge of how it will affect others. Life sometimes presents us with endings to accept or new beginnings to live into, whether we wanted them or not. Other times we find ourselves motivated to bring about something new or put to rest what we are ready to leave behind. February is a month when catalogs full of new enticing plants and seeds show up in my mail box. New varieties beg to be tried; the heirlooms promise strong performance. February's Hopework metaphor is the seed. What are you thinking about planting? Or perhaps you have already planted and are watching for the signs of growth. I invite you come with a story of a "seed" in your life. February Hopework Supper and Circle Date: Sunday, February 24, 2013. RSVP: Please let John or me know by Saturday night (2/23) how many plan to attend. Call me at 612-710-7287 or email if you have questions. I have room for about 12 people around the table (and at least 20 if we move it out of the way!) 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 7:00 pm, depending on the size of the group. 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 to this invitation, 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 evenings are a way to reconnect with friends who have shared in our work and 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 welcoming new friends and acquaintances. We meet the 4th Sundays of most months. Please join us when you can! New faces are always welcome. 2013 dates: March 24 April 28 Lynn Englund and John Wallace The Metro Lofts 2650 University Ave West, #315 Saint Paul, MN 55114 Map and directions: http://tiny.cc/FkhvY Lynn 651-646-0069 (home) 612-710-7287 (cell) BUS: Take the 16 or 50 bus to "Berry Street" The building is at the stop.
