Table Talks: Loneliness, Longing, Friendship

TABLE TALKS are about real conversation shared in community about contemporary human issues that affect our everyday lives.

“It is not good that the man should be alone,” God says of Adam in Eden (Gen 2:8). Loneliness is the first thing about creation that God declares not to be good. Perhaps the most dreadful human experience, loneliness may also be a gift—insofar as it creates in us longing for something outside ourselves, or better, longing for someone—a desire for friendship, both human and divine. Expect a blend of thoughtful conversation about these issues, based on short readings, with delightful community, over tasty desserts in homes around Long Beach.

Leaders: Wil Rogan, Rick and Sue Beeney.
