Many moons ago, we opened up The Ladder on Friday evenings for a sort of happy hour. We called it the Benedict Hour.
We experimented with its revival back in the fall of 2017, exclusively for Eighth Day Members and their guests, and have settled on a regular schedule.
The Ladder will be open for Eighth Day Members and their guests from 4:30-7:00 on Final Fridays, beginning this April 27.
And if you've been waiting for the Symposium issue of Synaxis on "Cultivating Friendship in a Fracture Age", you can drop by and pick up your copy - they will be released at this Benedict Hour!
There is no agenda, just an opportunity for our community to have fellowship and real conversation in a pub-like space without noisy background music nor distracting televisions filling every nook and corner (instead, most available space is filled with timely and timeless books!).
Our hope is also to bring back Table Talks for the public on these Final Fridays. We'll keep you posted on that front.
If you're not yet a member, consider joining our growing community and join us for the Benedict Hour this April 27.
See you there!
