Coffee hour on Wednesdays: BYOM and BYOI

Last Wednesday the Seminary community began its new worship schedule, which includes a coffee hour each Wednesday following the 10:00 AM service of Morning Prayer. When coffee hour happens next on Wednesday, February 5, students, staff, and faculty are asked to BYOM and BYOI: bring your own mug, and bring your own ideas. BYOM is pretty straightforward. If possible, please bring a regular coffee cup or travel mug to coffee hour in order to cut down on cardboard waste. For now, BYOI refers to two things. First, what sort of snacks and beverages you would like to see more of at coffee hour (as much as possible, these will be organic and/or free trade)? Second, as the Lenten Season approaches, we will be mindful of the ways we feast and fast together. What do you think makes for appropriate Lenten fellowship? Hide the cookies? Collect non-perishables for St. Peter's Food Pantry alongside our gathering? Think about what have you seen done in your congregations, and about what seems right to you. Comment cards will be available for both coffee hour requests and for Lenten brainstorming.
