HBC Deacons Meeting: Conundrum Edition

Deacons Meeting
DEACONS MEETING: Conundrum Edition
Saturday, May 16th (1pm PST)
Location: Online Only – Register Here

A Deacons Meeting has been called, so put it on your calendar and plan to join the live stream. There shall be communal geekery and nerdolicious prizes during this interactive podcast. Why have the Deacons been called? To what shall we turn our attention when we gather? Conundrums. Not just any conundrums but the ones that make your brain swell and your conscience squirm.

(I would ask what “reality” really means anyway but that may reveal a conundrum.)

Special guests include Micky Jones, Barry Taylor, Ryan Parker, Woody (Bishop of the OC), Tim Burnette (Elder of the Hops), and more to come!
