Merry Christmas and 2016 Awaits

May the joy of Christmas be yours and may the New Year unfold for you in ways that confer marvelous blessings!  The Christmas Party at Stephen's was great and we developed a new schedule for the coming year.  I present it to you below.

C.S. Lewis Society of Harrisonburg
Program for 2016
Theme meetings are meetings in which each member comes with their thoughts and references on the theme of the meeting prepared to speak on what they have brought for perhaps ten minutes.  Depending on how motivated you are by the theme you can choose to bring handouts for the group to facilitate your sharing.

Focus meetings have a leader.  Generally you should plan to read the book or essay, etc. on which the meeting focuses.  The leader should plan to send a hand out around with discussion and questions at least a week before the meeting to help the members in their preparation.
Meetings are generally the second Thursday in each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Harrisonburg Barnes and Noble.  Some members like to eat dinner at Panera's before the meeting.
