Our September Month's End Meeting

Chapel of Magdalene College, Cambridge
The next meeting of our Society will be the last Friday of September, the 28th.  We will discuss the last two chapters of The Weight of Glory.  The chapter "On Forgiveness" was written by Lewis in 1947 for a parish newspaper, but the rector moved to another church before it could be published.  It did not appear publicly until good ol' Walter Hooper located it in 1975.  In this paper, Lewis deals with the two ideas of forgiveness and excuses.  Should be interesting!

The second chapter is "A Slip of the Tongue."  Lewis was privately praying a prayer from the Prayer Book and almost said the wrong thing.  It got him thinking about something and we find his thoughts here.  Hooper tells us that Lewis used his thoughts for the last sermon he preached - which is our chapter - at Magdalene College Chapel, Cambridge, 29 Jan. 1956.  

Now something else different about this meeting will be the time and venue.  We are going to meet an hour earlier - at 6:00 p.m. - and we will convene at the Mean Mug coffeeshop, 114 West Main St. on the Southside.  They normally close at 5:00 p.m., but will open up for us and make their full menu available to us for a light supper.  Their coffee is produced by Velo and is really good.  We should have the place to ourselves, so we may find this a really good evening for discussion.  You can park on Main St. or in the back.

Hope to see you there!  If you are a Society friend on Facebook, be sure to indicate at the event post if you are coming or not - would be good to know.
