With special guest parishioner Marianne Lipson Community is made up of people, and people are full of stories.  We connect by talking to each other, yes, and about each other.  Somehow that always sounds like a bad thing – but we need it. Talking about ourselves, talking about each other, talking TO each other – how can we? how should we? when do we? Telling stories about ourselves and each other is the only way to share things beyond what we physically, literally experience together.  But we all know it’s rude to talk behind people’s backs – isn’t it? I invite anyone who wants to talk about GOSSIP to gather to hash out this question Sunday, January 7 at 10 a.m. Remember the famous words: “If you haven’t got anything nice to say, come sit near me.” [email protected] is the adult education hour on Sunday mornings at St. Peter’s.

On Being @ St. Peter's School
Jan 28 @ 12:15 pm
An informal opportunity for conversation based on the NPR series of the same name, this group discusses what they heard on the program. We each listen to or read the transcript of Krista Tippett interviewing someone who traffics deliberately in the big questions of life — could be a physicist, poet, priest, philosopher, or whatever. That interview is where our discussions start — but could wind up far afield while still considering the big question at hand. You can download or listen to the interview online or listen to it on WHYY 90.9 FM Sunday morning at 7 a.m. This group meets monthly at 12:15 p.m. on the first floor of St. Peter’s School. Newcomers are welcome!
