In lieu of our regular Hall of Men this Thursday, we have invited our friend Brandon Buerge to bring Pipes and Pints to us at The Ladder next Thursday, June 30. Pipes and Pints, Brandon's spin off of our Hall of Men, meets monthly at Brandon's casa in Newton, Ks. You can sign up for their emails at the June 30 meeting or by contacting Brandon.
We'll begin next Thursday with our regular format by opening doors at 7, serving food at 7:30, and praying the Eighth Day Convocation at 8:30. Then we'll turn it over to Brandon:
Pipes and Pints format: Anyone who so desires gets thirty seconds to pitch a topic for discussion at around 8:45 pm. Proposed topics are ranked by secret ballot (tallied in real time by yours truly), and taken in sequence, third-ranked through first-ranked, about a half hour each, until the clean-up round at 10:00pm.
Topics from the last go 'round: 3rd - Is the question of contraception a moral (rather than strictly practical) issue? 2nd - Does God allow prayer to change history and 1st - How do you resolve conflicts between convictions of faith and convictions of conscience?
As usual, expect great conversation and fellowship. And, if you study Brandon's primer on how to blow smoke rings, we might even have a few good smoke rings.
We hope to see you next Thursday.
