Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan have drawn two of the largest crowds to the Hall of Men. Their music is great and both of them challenge us to rise up and press on each time we fall. Dylan was especially inspiring in terms of his immersion in the Tradition of music. And immersing oneself in the Tradition, the Christian Tradition in this case, is precisely what Eighth Day Institute promotes. Our next meeting offers you a chance to do just that. So let's fill the Hall for an early Christian saint the way we have filled it for 20th century musicians!
We hope you'll join us at The Ladder on February 25 for a presentation on St Polycarp, a second-century bishop and martyr who was a disciple of St John the Theologian.
As usual, doors open at 7 pm and food is served around 7:30 pm. At 8:30 pm we'll prepare for the lecture with the Eighth Day Convocation: hymn, patristic and scripture readings, the Nicene Creed and the Lord's Prayer. Then a great lecture followed by good questions and discussion, good fellowship, and just possibly a few good smoke rings.
Bring your pipe, have a pint, and make yourself at home among brothers who love Christ, want to follow him well, and seek to renew our culture by being faithful witnesses for our faith.
We hope to see you February 25!
