As happens every so often, we fail entirely to get to a week’s topic. That was our experience last week. Instead of taking on the topic that was planned, we called an audible and took things in a totally different direction. When that happens we have some decisions to make. Do we go back to the future, as it were, and pick up the missed thread? Or do we move along to something new?
Well, as you might guess from the picture above, we’re going back to pick up last week’s topic and engage with it in our conversation this evening. Here’s a link if you want to read last week’s discussion prompt.
The gist of it is this, a challenge to us to think about the real costs of our own joys, comforts, and prosperity. So again are the questions we’re asking in our conversation this evening:
Are our present joys inextricably a consequence of past suffering and atrocity? Is our material comfort possible because others live in poverty? If your answer to either of these is “yes,” then what ought we do? If your answer is “no,” what leads you to say that?
Join us for the conversation beginning this evening starting at 7pm at Casa Real in downtown Oxford.
