@jimrobinson Happy birthday! Time for a feast in the monastery!
American culture has constructed a sort of liturgical season out of the days following Thanksgiving (Black Friday / Small Business Saturday / Cyber Monday / Giving Tuesday). Two thoughts: 1) it is fascinating that Sunday has been spared! Perhaps an unconscious nod to the sacred? 2) The U.S. church could put forth a series of feast days to counter this. If the culture is going to treat this week liturgically, why not counter with some prophetic wisdom? What feast days would you propose?
@jimrobinson Peace be with you on this feast of Christ the King!
@jbmorrison welcome, Jill!
@njcollura welcome, Nick!

Our current plan is to slowly add founding members beginning next month, discern a "rule of life" for governance and posting ethics over the summer, and open fully in September. We'll see how this works out!
