Dear Friends,

The Rogue24 restaurant of Washington, D.C. is just one restaurant that has had enough of cell phones. There is a no-tolerance ban on cell phones. They cite several reasons for the ban: the cell phone ringer volume isn’t controlled, the phone conversation disturbs other customers, and smart phone cameras generally have flash and that disturbs other customers when pictures are taken. The chef explains the policy this way:

“Let’s say you’re out on a date, but you sit there tweeting. What are you doing to your companion? You’re alienating them. You’re in an environment that’s trying to create an ambience that you can’t get anywhere else. If you go to the theater, they ask you to not use flash photography, because it distracts. It’s the same thing here. We’re in the middle of the dining room, so the flashing distracts us as well.

There will be a meeting this Sunday afternoon, April 6th, at 3:30 in Wesley Hall for all interested members of the 11:11 community to share thoughts with Dr. Bruster and other leaders of the music and worship arts ministries about the strengths of 11:11 and ways we can work together to support the next steps in its future.  It will be an opportunity both to ask questions and express our feelings about what is important to those of us for whom 11:11 is an important and meaningful part of our connection to FUMC.
