Sondheim Symposium on Friendship [Sequence Index]

In the summer of 2014, I reprised my successful Sondheim Symposium birthday party of two years prior.  In 2012, we watched Company and Passion and argued about romantic love.  This year, we paired Merrily We Roll Along (Sondheim’s musical that tracks the collapse of a friendship) with the “Philia/Friendship” chapter from C.S. Lewis’s The Four Loves.  (For extra credit, party attendees could also read Spiritual Friendship by Aelred of Rievaulx).

We ate thematically appropriate cake (see above) and settled down for discussion.  I’ve collected my thoughts in the posts below.

"Well, I would love to know if you now believe that homosexuality is intrinsically disordered."
