up/rooted.west gathering on Monday, March 13

Greetings up/rooted friends!

We will be meeting again for up/rooted.west on Monday, March 13 from 7-9pm. We will be following up last months discussion on faith, politics and the emerging church with a more personal/practical discussion of how we live out biblical principles of social justice here in suburbia. Come join us as we consider the following questions:

• How does/should social justice play a part in the shaping of our daily routines?
• How might our lives change if we truly lived a life valuing social justice?
• Where might we shop; what products would we buy; how would we spend our money; would we grow a garden; what would we wear?
• How would our entertainment habits change? Would we still pay $9 for a movie and $13 to eat out every other weekend, or would our lives require radical changes in order to truly live out what we believe?

We will be trying out a change of venue this month. We will be meeting in the back room of the Caribou Coffee on Roosevelt Rd in Glen Ellyn (495 E Roosevelt Rd, Glen Ellyn), conveniently located just west of I-355 - which should make it easier for those of you coming from further away. (click here for a map) If you want to come but you need a ride from Wheaton College or from the Metra Station, please contact me and we'll arrange a ride for you.

I hope to see you all there. Bring experiences and stories to share, and bring a friend as well. It's always great to be able to expand our network of friends and fellow travelers.
