Greetings from JI. How about the weather in Charleston this week. A chill in the air makes me thing of many things… one of them pumpkin🎃. This time of the year I will eat pumpkin in anything from Cake to (thanks to Stuart) Mac-and-Cheese. I’ll lead with a bit of housekeeping, we will not be holding court on Monday night as we celebrate the Eve of the All Hallows Feast💀🍗, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed. Be safe out there and remember, if you dress up, pictures must be taken and brought to Church next Monday night. Sorry, but rules are rules😇
On Monday night, we discussed the dreaded S word…Stuff. We started with how we feel Charleston is a great example of New-Urbanism. A new approach of sharing, experiences and space, that is spreading across the nation, thanks in large part to the Millennial’s approach to being “Green”. We then discussed how places like Ikea can lead to our homes literally busting at the seams. We closed, thanks to Jay, with a thought provoking discussion on how we can be a faithful Christian and enjoy our Earthly possessions at the same time; by simply choosing to see God in the joy that some of our “stuff” can provide.
Join us on Monday November 7th as we discuss Forgiveness.
