Coffee Talk -- an online community of Catholics supporting each other, talking things through, and sharing tips about family life-- will re-launch with new topics each day this coming Monday, November 19th.

 

Join us each day to discuss the following:


  • Monday: Parenting.  Any age, any stage. Ask your questions, share your strategies, commiserate, and learn.
  • Tuesday: Open Forum.  What would you like to talk about?
  • Wednesday: Natural Family Planning. Questions, tips, reality checks. Share your blessings and get support when it's hard.
  • Thursday: Marriage. Let's help each other keep our marriages strong through prayer, encouragement and shared wisdom.
  • Friday: Changing Roles. Not sure yet if that's really what we're going to call this topic, but it will be a forum for parents of adult children, people who are caring for elderly parents or for grandchildren.
  • Saturday: Education. Homeschooling, parochial schooling, public schooling.

 

That's starting next week, so spread the word.

 

Today and tomorrow, let's stick with Open Forum. What's on your mind that you'd like to discuss today?

  • If you're new to coffee talk, I like the way CD editor Danielle Bean described it yesterday. "For newcomers, this open forum is a place to share what's on your mind/ask a question/vent a problem/offer encouragement/share a story, etc. Just think of this as a room full of like-minded Catholic women with a variety of life experiences and all kinds of wisdom and encouragement to share. What might you like to ask -- anything big or small?" What is your family doing for Thanksgiving this year?

  • What do you think about the church advocating single payer health insurance for everyone in America? It works in many countries already, it saves the government a considerable amount of money (which is huge in this "fiscal cliff" "crisis" we now face), and it doesn't leave ANYBODY uninsured. Sounds like the perfect plan to me. Aetna, the third largest private, for-profit health insurer in America, pays its CEO $10,000,000 a year and makes nearly $2 billion/ year in profit (yet pays no income tax). I do not think we can afford this kind of capitalistic outrage any more.
