The "Dinner" part of the evening is a potluck. Bring whatever you'd like to eat for dinner, with enough to share. We can always use entrees and side dishes. The meal is never the same, and it's always enjoyable :-)
The "Listening" aspect is our community's attempt to become better at the life-giving practice of listening. During these events we have learned about community organizing, offered our responses to Scripture, and listened to some journey stories. Echoes got its name partly because we want to be a community that listens well. In particular we are listening for God might be doing in this region, and listening to what is happening in Bellingham. In order to get better at listening both individually and corporately, we are making it a priority by having monthly Dinner and Listening events. This is a great way to get an idea of what Echoes is like (and we're easy to be around).
THIS WEEK we are learning about coffee. Where does coffee come from? How is it grown? How is it harvested? How does it get to us? A coffee bean buyer from a local high quality coffee establishment will be on hand to give us the ins and outs. We'll also have some coffee available to buy from Underground Coffee, an extraordinary coffee business in Skagit Valley.
Location is Whatcom Land Trust at 412 N Commercial St. If you're on Lottie St., facing City Hall, look to the right and across the street and you'll see it.
