Another Week Over

Another week comes to an end. We have been busy. The Newsletter is a little delayed as we are trying to get the mailing database in a state that reduces the number of mail returns from old out-of-date addresses. We apologise for that and assure you it will be leaving this office in the next day or so.

I and the team are proud of this latest edition of 'Friends of Hope'. It's taken a lot of work but it's been worth it to see the finished product. We hope you all enjoy it.

Incidentally we will be producing the next electronic Newsletter, again in the next day or so. For those of you who can't access the Hope Virtually Daily Rolling News Magazine (see link below right) this is another way to keep up to date with campus news. Keep watching those inboxes!

On a personal note, I've been working with one of the international students and with my friends from Philosophy in Pubs to try and establish a new PIP's discussion group close by to the University Campus; The Halfway House is our most likely venue. Even so, what with Christmas coming up and the long(ish) holiday we are unlikely to get things off the ground until early in the new year, probably around mid January 2007. I'm quite excited about the venture. At the moment I travel on Tuesday evenings to Waterloo on the other side of Liverpool for one of the other groups. Its a long day, after finishing here, then having to drive 40 minutes, take part in a discussion, then drive back to Southport. Having a PIPs group close by will be a real relief. It will mean I can enjoy the discusssion more and have more energy to participate. Have a listen to this: It's courtesy of BBC Radio 3 and gives a good idea of what the PIP's groups are all about: Click Here (link pending).

All of you out there are cordially invited to attend the new group or for that matter, any of the other groups. I really can't recommend PIP's highly enough for those of you who spend time thinking about the meaning of life, be you religious or otherwise (like me). I've been going to Group's off and on now for 4 or 5 years and as I say there are 5 or 6 other venues throught the city. Check out the article in friends@hope to find out where, what and when.

Have a nice weekend y'all and come back refreshed ready to start work Monday!

All the best

Still trying to get the PIP thing going here, but no-one has shown interest yet unfortunately, apart from the small cadre of friends whom I spend time with.

By the way, I love your quote on the page. Keep them updated, I like reading them and watching the thoughts that fly off because of it.

I'm looking forward to having some of our talks soon...!
