“Blognic” is a Fr Z. term for a gathering of bloggers for eating, drinking and conversation. We had one of these early last year (or was it late 2007 – can’t remember – too long ago anyway) when we gathered here to farewell Monica and to attend the launch of Dr Tracey Rowland’s book “Ratzinger’s Faith”.
Book launches seem a great opportunity for this sort of thing, and so Joshua (from Psallite Sapienter) and I have decided to call a Blognic (aka the 2nd Annual Melbourne Catholic Bloggers Gathering) for Sunday 25th of January at 6pm for dinner together and then to attend the launch of Dr Adam Cooper’s new book “Life in the Flesh: An anti-gnostic spiritual philosophy”.
The Book launch, which is at the Australian Catholic University (115 Victoria Parade, Fitzroy) from 7.30pm to 9.30pm, will also include Bishop Christopher Prowse as guest speaker on the topic ‘Making sense of human suffering – hope, witness and redemption.’
If you are interested, and can join us, please RSVP in the com-box. We won’t exclude non-Catholic bloggers – we’ll be ecumenical on this issue, I think! I haven’t thought of a meeting place just yet, but once we know who is coming we can organise where we meet and eat.
