This Sunday, we will be meeting at the Topiary Garden in downtown Columbus at 3:00.
Here is a link to a map. Let's meet at the entrance at the Northwest corner close to the parking for the Main Library.
The loose topic of discussion is Faith and Politics. Now I realize that entire foundations have been created based on that topic and we won't be able to do it justice in a mere two hours.
Perhaps a better approach may be this: Below are links to several recent and relavent political and faith resources, some of which have been forwarded around, others of which may be new or just interesting. Perhaps three or four of us could assume ownership of one of the resources or something similar and present a short summary to the group. I think this would be part informative and part discussion generating.
These are just a couple of things I've been looking through, there are obviously countless more. If you have something to share, post a link so if we have time to expose ourselves to it before the meeting we can. If you know you want to present something, share so we know what to look at. Thoughts?
I don't feel trained in the tools for how do intelligintly deal with so many of the complex issues of the ongoing debate (literally: 9:54 Wed. eve). I for one would love hearing not only what information you discover and want to share with the group, but how you process that as a Christian.
Where does Biblical truth fit into $700 Billion bailout packages?
How does God involve his will with who is president?
Is America supposed to be a "city on a hill?"
Would rather be governed by a smart Turk than a dumb Christian? (Martin Luthor would)
What are local issues you know of that we should be aware of?
If you need another reason to come, the Topiary Garden itself is quite the wonder of the world: It is the only topiary interpretation of a painting in existence. It is based on Georges Seurat's Famous post impressionist painting, A Sunday On The Island Of La Grande Jatte.
Now that's maverick.
