If you've never experienced a Round Table, here's the format: Doors open at The Ladder at 6:30 pm on the first Tuesdays of each month. At 6:45 pm., anyone interested in pitching a topic gets thirty seconds to use their rhetorical skills to convince us their proposal deserves discussion. Proposed topics are ranked by secret ballot, tallied in real time, and then taken in sequence, third-ranked, second-ranked, and finally the first-ranked question from the previous meeting (hopefully you've had some time to ponder and prepare for this question; if you found a relevant or helpful essay, passage from a book, or even a poem, please bring and share!). Each topic is given about 30 minutes of discussion, with a ten-minute break in between each round.
The pre-selected question for this meeting - number one choice from last meeting - is: "With purported decreases in world poverty and improving global health, is the world in fact getting better or worse?"
Light hors d'oeuvers will be provided.
As usual, beer and wine will be available on a donation basis.
We're looking forward to room full of ladies and gentlemen engaging in a great ecumenical dialogue of love and truth.
We hope to see you 6:30 pm at The Ladder on Tuesday, April 3!
Eighth Day Institute seeks to renew culture by promoting the common heritage of Nicene Christianity. And we are committed to facilitating a dialogue of love and truth as a step in that direction. This means we gladly allow a broad range of perspectives. But it does not mean that we agree with everything presented or published.
We hope and pray that you will join the conversation. And we humbly ask you to help us continue promoting the unity of Christians for the sake of our dying culture. Please consider joining our growing community of Eighth Day Members today.
