Saturday Night With a Beer (or whatever)

Was watching Lark Rise to Candleford. Our Saturday Night at the movies kind of thing. Tonight there was an interesting thread on duty and responsibility but I could not watch it all because a neighbor came by. Her husband is in France right now tending to the details of his elderly mother's death. She (our neighbor) is upset because she could not be with him while he goes through this difficult time. Hmmm- the thread stretches on.

Question for tonight- Does the current trouble that Greece is having, portend teh doom of the EU?

or any other you'd like to throw out. The beer is cold.

Saturday Night With a Beer (or whatever) Good Friends and Good Conversation

Many years ago, a couple of friends and I would meet at the Dog and Duck Pub and drink a few beers and discuss matters of great importance. Usually it was theology or at least led to theology (natural since Theology is the mother of all 'ologys after-all) There were some good times and I listened (but not enough) and learned and grew. Times change of course and life took away those moments (and friends moved off to Indiana- (damn it MC) ) And I miss those times.

Something occasionally happens like that on these blogs. A point of contact, an insight, an inspiration and even, dare I say, friendships.

So I thought I would try something for a few months. Every Saturday evening I can, I'll post a topic or question for discussion. I'll do it around 9:00 pm central time. and maybe we can discuss them in the comments section. I'll leave it up all week so if you can't make it Saturday evenings then you can stop in later. You can also add your own questions via e-mail or this blog if you would like. It can be about anything that would make a good conversation.

I hope to "see" you here tonight. I'll try it for a few months and if it works, then great. If not, oh well. I'm still drinking the beer.

(I know some folks don't drink and that's OK- sip on something else. If you do partake, please share the name so I can put it on the shopping list) :-)

a meditation in song. Particularly poignant sung at that point in his life.
