Feast of St Nicholas the Wonderworker, Archbishop of Myra
Be apprised that the date for the next Great Conversation has been changed from Tuesday, February 16, to Tuesday, February 23. A conflict on the Eighth Day Institute's schedule requires this change. We will gather at 7 p.m. at The Ladder, immediately west of Eighth Day Books. The evening conversation will end formally at 8:30 p.m.
The topic has not changed: "Who is the best candidate [as of February 23] to be the next President of the United States?" As the date nears and your choice solidifies, please come prepared to argue your claim with warrants/support. I hope that you will suggest this opportunity to others/friends whose views might be on the other side of the political spectrum from yours.
Looking further ahead: Have you asked your pastor to consider preparing for the debate on Tuesday, April 12? (Pastors, have you mentioned this opportunity to your peers?) Non-ordained scholars within our churches are also invited to seek inclusion among the primary speakers. If you know that you desire a primary role, please let me know soon. The question: "What is the proper interpretation and understanding of the Creation accounts in Genesis 1 and 2?"
In the bonds of great conversation,
