i’m glad to announce our next monthly big group gathering. once again this month, we’ll be hanging out at gusano’s this coming sunday, october 25 from 6 – 8 p.m. this gathering will be called EIKON | WHERE: a conversation about our community.
we had a really great, fruitful conversation with last month’s EIKON | WHO & we think this conversation will be another building block in the larger conversation about what this thing called eikon is all about. specifically, this conversation will be about little rock and, in broader terms, how people in this area—this community—view and engage the church. there’s a very particular culture here not only in little rock, but the south and the greater bible belt that informs how we do community and, ultimately, this thing called church.
as always, the conversation is incomplete without you! as cliché as that might sound, it’s very true. if i get up and spout off my feelings about the cultural and religious climate of little rock, i may certainly make some valid points, but the conversation, at best, will be incomplete. we really hope that a lot of different people will bring a lot of different viewpoints that will ultimately tell us about the community around us.
as always, i like to offer a bit of a disclaimer: NOTE TO THE INTROVERTS WHO ARE CRINGING AND DRY HEAVING RIGHT NOW (which actually includes myself, in terms of the introvert personality type): because I can certainly empathize, you don’t need to worry about being called on, called out or singled out. it’s your choice about how much or how little you contribute to the conversation. while we encourage active participation, we want to honor the fact that everyone engages in different ways. some do it by talking, while some do it by listening. so, please discontinue your dry heaving…no need to panic…you’re in good hands with eikon. :)
so, here’s the details:
where: gusano’s pizzeria
when: sunday, october 25 from 6 – 8 pm
what: EIKON | WHERE: a conversation about our community
who: everybody come out, bring some friends…the more, the merrier
for the first hour-ish, we’ll be eating, drinking and doing all things that conjure merriment. somewhere around 7ish, we’ll shift into the conversation. so, even if you just want to drink and heckle, this will be the type of gathering to attend. :)
see you this sunday!
