The current installment of the COEC began meeting in 2007.

We are currently on a "break," for no particular reason, and many little reasons - mostly pertaining to life circumstances. If anyone is interested in calling a meeting, feel free to post on the blog, join the google group (see link below) and send an email, or contact either Nancy (nancykj10@yahoo.com) or Jesse (schroeder.jesse@gmail.com) for more information.

Celebration of the Faithful

Thank you all who participated in the discussion of Psalms 22 at Zack and Eve's home on Sunday. We explored David's feeling forsaken by God and the words cried out by Jesus on the cross, "My God why have you forsaken me" The subjects of lamenting and suffering brought out many new perspectives and insights and we could agree that this difficult process, when fully experienced, brings hope, praise, creativity and depth to our lives.

Next Sunday, January 24, we will gather together for Celebration of the Faithful at 4:00 at Nancy Jarosi's house in German Village. By unanimous decision the theme for this Sunday's potluck is the letter "P."

Thank you in advance for commenting to indicate if you plan to attend.

Hi guys! I just wanted to say that I've been keeping up with the cohort on the blog and by reading the emails, and I'm so happy that the group is continuing to flourish. I really wish I could be there with you at this celebration. Being away from the cohort this year has made me realize what an amazing and unique community it is. I also wanted to let everyone know that I put up a post a few days ago on my and Nick's Europe blog (9monthsofsolitude.blogspot.com) about my spiritual life in Paris. The months in Europe have been wonderful so far, but all the same I'm looking forward to returning to Columbus in June. See you then!

Jane, can't wait to meet you. :)

Tracy & I are coming, and are bringing something that hopefully will have a p in it. I have no clue, and that is the trufax. But I am sure it will be something nobody likes, that clashes with what other people bring, and also that duplicates someone's effort. Cuz that's how I roll. :D
