Hot ideas in cold weather

ideaExchange | past and present


uring the cocooning season (the cold months) saint benedict’s table gets some of us out of the house once a month to hear new ideas and challenging topics. We’re then invited to join a conversation with the presenter and with each other. It’s called ideaExchange and it takes place at Aqua Books (274 Garry Street, just south of Portage Avenue). Tonight, at 7:30pm, the January edition of ideaExchange features an evening of music and reflection with Gord Johnson, artist-in-residence for saint benedict’s table. Gord is the author of many of the songs that have become standards in our liturgies, with eight of those songs being featured on Steve Bell’s Devotion album.

Join us this evening… but if you can’t, spend some time with an old episode of ideaExchange. Over the years we’ve recorded and podcast 23 presentations. All of them are available on iTunes while many of them (15) are available on this website with the links below.
