May 2010, Hindu Temple tour

Brothers,

We will meet in the lobby of the Hindu Temple, just through the main doors, at 6:30 pm on Monday night. Please be prompt. An Indian dinner will be served at the temple following a tour/discussion led by Dr. Shashikant Sane. Dr. Sane is one of the priests of the temple and has recently retired from Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis. He is a learned and pragmatic student of Hinduism. Check out Dr. Sane’s recent lecture on the Bhagavad Gita at Hindu Temple.
Groups I have taken to the temple in the past have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Directions to the Hindu Temple and other information can be found atwww.hindumandirmn.org/. I can be reached by cell phone at xxx-xxx-xxxx if any last minute issues arise.

Namaste ,
Paul

April, 2010 – Friendship

Mammoths,

I am hosting the Monday, April 19th gathering of Woollies.  As I mentioned at Frank’s I would like us to converse about friendship and friends.  I like Charlie’s idea of that as a topic.  Come with any thoughts, readings, art, memories, etc. that represent friendship to you.  I am including one of John O’Donohue’s blessings.

We will gather here in our apartment party room.  You’ve been here before.  I’m including a map.

Let’s celebrate our friendship.

Thanks,
Bill

P.S.,  Here are a couple thoughts to ponder:

Henri Nouwen:
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Henry David Thoreau:
The most I can do for my friend is simply to be his friend. I have no wealth to bestow on him. If he knows that I am happy in loving him, he will want no other reward. Is not friendship divine in this?
