      EVENT DETAILS
      Conversations at The Simple Way, August 25th 2012

      Friends of The Simple Way.

       

      We are extending an invitation for you to participate in a daylong event we are hosting here at The Simple Way on August 25th, 2012. We are trying something new and would love for you to join us!

       

      We hope to engage all those who come our way- those looking for connection and communion but also concrete steps to love God, love others and follow Jesus, whether they come for a night in the Hospitality House, or to participate in a weekend experience like Schools for Conversion.

       

      In an effort to experiment with new ways of meeting this need, of serving folks wanting to go deeper, and to utilize the rich network of friends here in Philly, we are hosting a day of conversations here in the neighborhood on August, 25th 2012 (a day that can go on your calendars now).

       

      The day will be broken into 4 parts; Community, Service, Conversation and Snacks.

      •  9:30-10:00 Registration/Coffee at 3234 Potter Street
      • 10:00-11:00 Conversation about Community Living
      • 11:00-12:30 Practical Service—Preparing for our Labor Day school supplies distribution
      • 12:30-1:00 Lunch
      • 1:00-3:00 Conversations about Stewardship at 1838 E Allegheny
      • 3:00- 3:30 Practical Application — Q&A, Debrief, and Next Steps

       

      We are inviting people to Kensington to join us in a roundtable discussion about intentional community and the basic practices of shared living. We will also create a time for people to volunteer in our school supplies campaign by stuffing bags, counting pencils and working to prepare our donations for the Labor Day event. We will host lunch in the afternoon and are inviting some friends from a partner organization to be storytellers over the lunch hour- to share how they specifically are serving communities in a creative way. We will spend the rest of the afternoon engaged in a focused conversation about stewardship; or more plainly, what we do with what we've got.


      We would love to have you come and share some of your successes, failures, and best practices of stewarding your time and your talents and your treasures. We trust that this will be a rich experience for you and for those who join us. Please consider the invitation and register today.

       

       

      *PS - If you are unable to attend on August 25th, but would be interested in participating on another day like this, please email me at [janell@thesimpleway.org]. We plan to host more conversation days like this in the future.
