Tonight, Brett spoke about isolation, with paradoxical help from Bruce Jenkins, author of My Home, My Castle and It's Not Assault If It's Home Defence.
Our scripture reading was a story from 2 Samuel 13. (read the full text online here)
The scenario on the Scruples card was:
"You are enjoying yourself at a dinner party, when somewhere between main and dessert, another guest makes a comment about your dress sense. Do you (a) make a sarcastic jibe in return (b) find a reason to go home early (c) laugh it off with an innocent comment (d) wait for your moment and comment on their weight?"

To summarise Brett's conclusions:
1. Cultivate a lack of restraint for the interests of others.
2. Deal with the impulse toward celebrity.
3. Lean away from isolation.
Take care of yourselves, and each other. (ῧ)

Tonight, Rob spoke about good assumptions and bad assumptions. At least, that's what I presuppose.
The reading was 1 Samuel 17:22-27; 31-40; 18:5-9. (read it online here)
The scenario on the Scruples card read:
"On a regular basis, you witness your coworker drinking on the job. This person is a high wage earner for the company and his drinking hasn't affected his performance. He also has a family and four small children. The company has a strict policy on drinking on the job - immediate dismissal. You have approached him personally but he tells you to mind your own business. What do you do - alert your boss or stay silent?"
