Courageously Explicit

I received word this week that my interest group proposal was accepted. Here's the wording that I finally condensed it into (the guideline is "around 50 words." Hmmm).

Courageously Explicit
Three Friends walk into Meeting for Worship: a Christian, a Pagan, a Jew, and a Non-Theist. Each gives ministry from their own experience; they all experience gathered Worship. Come create the rest of the story: coming together, supporting each other, building community, helping each other be faithful, speaking explicitly.

I love the concept!! But shouldn't it say 4 friends?

I thought that too, but then I thought that the 'joke' was that many Friends are some combination of that set of characteristics, so among the three Friends (or sometimes even within one or two Friends) all those labels might apply.

Judy, you are right! Thank you for "getting" that! :)

I am realizing I never posted a summary of the actual interest group here. I know I sent something of one to the QuakerPagans group, so I'll look in the archives and see if I can adapt what I wrote...

But, it was a really good evening. Huge turnout -- 30-odd people? -- much deep and rich conversation. I loved, loved it.
