Marianna, thanks for the summary of the session on Chapter 1.  We could not believe that I suddenly noticed that it was 9:05 and had missed the event.  We just got stuck in doing pre-Christmas tasks, and let the time slip by.  Perhaps we will set an alarm clock on Jan. 5.  Thanks again!  Sounds like you had a fruitful session!

Dear Discussion group, 
Last evening (Tuesday Dec. 15) we concentrated on Chapter I of  Global Shift (Dick West, Mark Dover, and the Baileys).  The chapter on Global Crisis brought to our consciousness the global distress that plagues human life and the planet. We also talked about the future pain and suffering that is predicted for all life from global warming.However, there are many signs that the world is beginning to wake up. The critical question is will we do it in time? In the mist of this we encounter the call for all of us to move toward creating a new set of values and priorities by which to live. Chapter I exposed us once again to the limits and  possibilities of the future.
Mark Dove gave us a vivid image to pull together our experience of Chapter I.
"For a long time Holy Communion meant nothing to me, but when I heard the words that the broken bread is the brokenness of life which you take into yourself, and the wine represents the call  to engage the injustices of this world the ritual took on meaning."
Important change! The access telephone number has been changed to 712-432-0180
 Jan. 5th is the next call. Have your one sentence ready to read at the beginning! Chapter 2
Merry Christmas and Happy New year!
The Baileys

>Hi All,
>>I would like to suggest that next Tuesday we begin our discussion by everyone giving their name and ONE sentence that stood out for them.  (Chapter I )After that we will let the conversation go wherever it leads us. A few minutes before our close those who would like can briefly say what new insight they gained from the discussion.
>>Would it be OK with everyone to skip Dec.22nd and 29th? We could resume the discussion after the holidays on Jan. 5th.
