Stone Fence Sagas – Truth/Reality/Personal Experience – October 29th, 2020

October 29, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
$19.95

Truth/Reality/Personal Experience/Stuff Happening: Gateminders, access, accountability in a world gone virtual  Eloquence is reserved for certainties, which include prejudices. It's kept from consternation, from wonder. Those poverties are amplified by the internet. It can't carry the frail seeking-after-companionship of the lonely crowd, the dream of a better day of the sleepless vigilante. The soul, or the screen: those might be the choices. 'True' is a verb. It's a way of cyphering the likelies among all that potential. It's the stuff…

Belonging/Believing: Health, hearth, wholeness and radical citizenship in a time of plague We are living an undeclared occupation. Despair and disbelief: both are religions now. The fantasy of restoration proliferates, threatens. In these few passing moments we are making the near future the kids will inherit. From whence our health and happiness? We've a hard time telling adversary from enemy, adversity from emnity. Here's a clue: The adversary is an ally you wouldn't seek. Before the coming of the missionary,…

Patrimony, Matrimony, Ceremony: Vowing in a ritually illiterate culture The fifteen minute secular wedding was crafted to make sure nothing happens. Nobody goes to a wedding to change the world, or to wonder what a wedding is. But weddings aren't celebrations of love, though They're dangersome, conjuring acts. Who to marry? Not as challenging now as whether to marry? how to marry? Vows aren’t promises. They don't need a future. They happen when you make them. Matrimony is older than…

END IN WISDOM: The holy darkness of this December (livestream talk)

December 12, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

There's no way around it. This time of year has been hijacked, monetized and held for ransom as the Mother of All Cheer. I just sweated through an off-shore import they called Black Friday, and some ghost notion they called Cyber Monday, or something close. As did you. I'm regaled routinely now by this on-line hype for a new credit card: "It's never been easier to get what you want, what makes you feel good." As are you. Jeez. Any…
