Bright Thursday & Feast of St Basil the Confessor
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. We've now settled on a regular schedule.
The Ladder will be open for Eighth Day Members and their guests from 4:30-7:00 pm on Final Fridays, beginning this April 27.
And if you're an Eighth Day Member who has been waiting for the 2018 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 at the Benedict Hour, 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 on these Final Fridays, opening the doors to the public at 7 pm for Vespers and a Table Talk. 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!
