Dear Hopework friends, The days are getting longer and the trees are starting to glow with the faintest green. Despite today’s blizzardy weather, warmer days are coming soon, and spring is sure to be around the corner. John and I invite you to join us for this month’s Hopework supper and circle on Sunday, February 23, from 4-7 PM. We will share a simple meal followed by the pleasure of listening to each others’ stories. Last month brought new visitors and long-time friends with a delightful sharing of stories on what we were adapting to in the new year. This month’s topic is on the image of “melting” and how it can be used to describe parts of our lives. Icicles melt drop by drop in the sun, glaciers melt more slowly with rivers flowing deep below the surface before surface change is visible. Dig back in your memory and find a story of a time of melting. Was the melting from the outside first, like an icicle, or a slower and deeper shift? Was something freed when the ice thawed? Did anything flow with the ice melt? 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 (2/22) 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 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 612-710-7287 (Lynn’s cell) to RSVP or with questions.
