Dear Hopework friends,

I hope your holidays were warm and bright and that the New Year has started 
well. I am encouraged by the slightly longer days and buoyed by the beauty of 
the recent full moon and sparkles in pristine snow. 

John and I invite you to join us for the first Hopework supper and circle of 
2014 on Sunday, January 26, from 4-7 PM. We will share a simple meal followed 
by the pleasure of listening to each others' stories of what we are adapting to 
in the new year. Perhaps you are adapting to a change required to maintain a 
new year’s resolution, or are adapting to a change in circumstance, such as the 
start of a new semester, or find that you are adapting in some other way in 

Please let me know if you are coming: I have room for about 12 people around 
the table (maybe 20 if we move it out of the way). Call or email Lynn or John 
by Saturday night (1/25) to let us know how many plan to attend.  

Time: Arrive between 4:00 and 4:30 pm. The meal will begin about 4:30 pm. We 
usually finish telling stories and cleaning up about 7:00-7:30 pm, depending on 
the size of the group.

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

For those of you who are new to this invitation, Hopework is the practice of 
creating opportunities intended 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. Hopework gatherings occur 
on the last Sunday of the month from January through April with a different 
topic each month.

Email or call if you have questions, or to RSVP.
