WOULD YOU COME?
I am madly writing a Playbook to go along with I PRAY ANYWAY: Devotion for the Ambivalent.
The book itself emerged with no specific purpose other than to satisfy my soul.
It led me to lots of reading and thought and increasing interest about faith, the spiritual, etc in today’s world.
So I am putting together a booklet to help create discussion/conversation about the themes that are in my book. It will have discussion questions, comments by me, quotes, and activities for a
mini-playshop. And I’ll toss in some interesting resources I’ve bumped into like The Friendly Atheist newsletter. Such interesting stuff going on.
I see it being used by church groups, book clubs, colleges, and anyone willing to ‘play’ with the role of belief and God today, mini-miracles, how to pray, how to trust your own experience and how to talk across profound differences. You know, stuff like that.
I will do a pilot palmtop in early October for the fun of it and I do mean for the fun of it. I’m thinking of a Thursday from 5:30 to 8:30 with food provided. Talking with mouths full is just fine.
The purpose will be to explore and clarify for each person what they might be looking for in a more spiritual life or not and to talk about prayer–the power, the need for it and how on earth to pray if you want to. I want as many differences in the room as I can gather. I will invite about 7 people and ask that they bring a friend.
Would you come if I invited you?
