It’s kind of a new thing for us, but I think it’s a step in the right direction. …
WHERE: Angela & Sam Gebhardt’s House
ADDRESS: 3103 S Halm Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90034
DATE: JAN 31ST, 2012
DATE & TIME & FREQUENCY: Angela and I were debating between a Mon and Tues. Looks like Tuesday is more doable for the group than Monday. If I’m really wrong, let me know. We are thinking 1 time a month to start…the 4th Tuesday of each month.
FIRST ONE: The first one will be at Angela & Sam Gebhardt’s house in Culver City. They have graciously volunteered their house. We can decide during the first meeting if it’s better for people to meet at one house, alternate houses, or the church.
DISCUSSION TOPICS: We are thinking that we could start with the book, 12 Steps to a Compassionate Life. There’s plenty to discuss in that book and we don’t have to necessarily only talk about the book. I’d love for it to be a place where we can also dialogue about individual situations and daily struggles each of us are having. BUY BOOK: You can buy it from the bookstore or from Amazon
OUTLINE FOR EVENINGS (TENTATIVE):
7:30pm: Meet and greet (everyone bring wine or appetizer)
8:00pm: Start with 1 chapter/step in the 12 Steps to a Compassionate Life
915-930/45: Share an individual situations/struggles anyone is having and pray together
9:30~10:00: we are out of there..
Let me know your thoughts!
We are beginning with a slew of activities, thought by members of the group, based on activities we are already doing in our lives.
We are opening ourselves up to our communities and the communities around us.
Planned recurring activities:
Vegan Dining with Christian: Try new vegan restaurant every thursday. But Christian challenges you to go full-on vegan for lent.
