Two points of interest this week:
Tonight (Wednesday) at 8pm EST (7pm CST) there will be a VIRTUAL meeting of the American Chesterton Society, which sounds fun to be sure – who knows? Perhaps our ACS mystery reader from Russia will tune in! http://chesterton.enterthemeeting.com/m/SALNPAFL (Go to this link to sign up / sign in and instantly find yourself in the company of Chestertonians nationwide, and beyond!) (Yes, it’s true, the web page for the Albany Chesterton Society has a Russian visitor – фантастический! как здорово, что?)
Also, a reminder in case you missed last week’s Albany Chesterton Society gathering, we will be meeting up TOMORROW, thursday at 7pm at Finnbar’s Pub in Troy (formerly Holmes & Watson, our first – but short-lived – home!) for a second hoisting of The Flag of the World (Orthodoxy, Chapter 5). (NB this is also open to nuts like me who did NOT miss last week’s gathering)
In these polarized times we live in, while confusion seems to reign concerning matters of the State, allegiances, politics and authority… What flag do we fly? Reading Chesterton reminds me to look up, and sometimes upside-down, at the world and my place in it. Your refreshing company and common-sense banter, Chesterton and the community he avails us of, provide a dose of hope and mirth!
