We finally have a location secured. We will be meeting at the Italian Classroom
at 9 am on Sunday. It's a 16 minute walk according to Google Maps
. Please let me know ahead of time if you need transportation assistance so that I can plan on driving in that day.
The space is next to the Two Bells Tavern. Someone from the tavern will be meeting me there at 9 to let me in; it looks like the door to the classroom is on the street next to the tavern. Plan on us actually starting by about ten or fifteen after the hour once we get settled, and we'll go for roughly an hour.
We have some other possibilities for location for next year that I'll tell you about on Sunday. Safe travels, and see you Sunday!
Hi all, for those who don't know me, I am also known as Avidguru from the multi-gaming guild MOG Nation and cohost of the Wildcast podcast. I am a Christian and a gamer; both of these things are an important part of who I am. I have been moved lately to intermix them a bit more.
I would like to start a tradition of gathering with other PAX attendees to have a time of fellowship and worship on Sunday morning. I am not big on modern Christian music, so I am thinking a couple of hymns, some time in prayer, and then some discussion about what being a Christian gamer means. I am not a pastor (in fact, I'm scared silly about doing this!), so this will be less of a sermon and more of an open discussion.
I would like to invite anyone of any religion (or interest in) to this gathering. Prayers and blessings from several languages and traditions would be really cool. All I ask of everyone attending is respect for everyone else there. This will not be a place for argument or lambasting; if you wish to have a more contentious discussion, let's do that at another time.
This thread is to find out the level of interest so that I can arrange for an appropriate space and time. Let me know either in this thread or by PM if you are interested!
Please do not post in this thread to discuss or argue about various religions, or to make derogatory comments. If you want to have a discussion about something in that vein, feel free to PM me and we can do it that way or meet up sometime.
God's peace be with you,
aka Avidguru from Twitter and elsewhere
