However, based on the discussions following our reading of Gaudiem et Spes, I also propose that we read it one section at a time, have a discussion on each section, and then, when we get to the end, see if we can pull the threads together.
Therefore I propose we read the Introduction and Chapter One (say by next weekend?); then the rather longer Chapter 2 (over the following fortnight – to allow some time for discussion of Ch 1) and so on. We should be able to read the whole letter in this way in 3 chunks, over, say 6 weeks, and (maybe) not be too overwhelmed.
If anyone wants to post a few questions to start the discussion, either now or as they read it, that would help. I shall try to remember to do so.
If anyone thinks this a bad idea, feel free to say so – but you will need a counter-suggestion!
