To keep the post short, I'll list some of the topics here, and then some more details in the comments section.
Topics of Discussion
- Lent: Everyone shared their respective history and experience with Lent, which turned out to be quite varied
- What does Lent mean to you? There was good discussion about favorite verses, experiences and some lessons on Church history.
- The role of ritual in the Christian life: This was the topic that seemed to raise the most questions and discussion. I'll post more in the comments.
- Next two weeks meetings: We agreed to join Nick and Jane for their super fun community choir concert next week (info here), and then to try to attend a Catholic fish fry on Friday the 29th, before heading to "Drums Downtown" to see Greg perform. More online info here, and I'm sure we'll post details in the coming weeks.
