Don't forget that our next up/rooted gathering will be this coming Monday, November 13 from 7-9pm at Kristine Socall's home (26w325 Torrey Pines Ct, Winfield, IL). We'll be joined by the Psalters as well as a friend from Camden House, an intentional community in New Jersey, to lead us in a discussion about alternative forms of church, intentional communities, and radical discipleship.
If you're new to up/rooted, maybe you came for the first time in September to hear Doug Pagitt, or maybe you've just found yourself on this mailing list but have never actually come, I want to especially invite you and encourage you to attend. up/rooted is a network of friendships, and your voice would be valued in this conversation. This will be a more relatively "normal" format for up/rooted (special guests notwithstanding), so this is a good chance to see what usually goes on if you've never been to a "normal" night before.
BTW, bring some snacks, drinks or appetizers to share if you care to. And also, as an act of love towards the Psalters (and Kristine) who are staying in Kristine's house for a few weeks, if you come, please bring some groceries to help feed them during their stay. Kristine said that fresh fruits and vegetables are especially welcome, though canned goods and other staples I'm sure would be equally appreciated.
See you there!
