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.

To receive cohort emails, join our Google group.


King James Bible

ANOTHER UPDATE: Due to families in town, and some people traveling out of town, there was limited response. Therefore, we have moved this discussion to Sunday July 24th. 

There will be no cohort gathering on Sunday July 10. 


UPDATE (from Jesse): Here is some more information about the exhibit:

"This exhibition should feature something to suit everyone's tastes, including medieval manuscripts, original copies of the many different English Bible translations produced during the sixteenth century, literature and art inspired by the style, language and content of the Bible." It runs until August 28th, so we could plan to check it out another time.

The Thompson Library is open from 11am till midnight. Just outside of the library is the Oval, a great place to sit in the shade of a tree and chat for a bit. We could also find a spot to sit and talk in the library if the weather is too hot.

For those who live further away, I would recommend parking on 15th and walking to the library. Other parking ideas?

We have scheduled to meet from 3-5pm. This is the only time I can make it, because Kel and I have dinner plans with family.

So in summary: Sunday, July 10, 3-5pm, Thompson Library, King James Bible Exhibit and discussion

However, if very few people are interested or will be able to make it, we should definitely reschedule. I know Nick wants to see the exhibit, and there may be a better time. Therefore, PLEASE, comment here or respond via email to let everyone know your plans one way or another. I'll check back Sunday morning and post a definite yes/no.

_____ (below is Nick's original post) ______

Hi everyone,

This Sunday our plan was to look at the free King James Bible exhibit at OSU's main library. I had pushed for this one since I am a history and old book dork, but it turns out I will be out of town this weekend and unable to make it. There is information about the exhibit here: http://www.manifoldgreatness.org/, though I think we are a 'traveling exhibit' so I'm not entirely sure how much is here, though from what we read earlier I think a great deal. Does anyone have a link to that info?

In any case, since I won't be here to head things up, perhaps this is not the best activity. Thoughts?
