Wisdom From Table Eleven/Ron Phipps

Wisdom From Table Eleven is about a gaggle of grumpy and flawed old men in their 70s and 80s who meet for lunch every Friday and discuss and argue over current events. Having seen a lot and done a lot, good, bad, and worse, they try to make sense of what is happening in this country. Most are veterans and all are patriots who love America.

No topic is off the table, from the emergence of wokeness to the rise of antisemitism to term limits to government corruption to the failing of urban education. Even tachometers and why we don’t need pennies is tackled. Along with a sense of humor, they offer interesting ideas along with insightful revelations about the causes of the quandary our nation is facing. Their discussion is shaped by their cumulative 400 years of living and their Christian faith.
