Hi All,
Can anyone recommend a shoe repair shop anywhere on the south fork (or the north, for that matter?) The closest to East Hampton I've been able to find is Westhampton Beach! Many thanks in advance for any leads, and happy holidays!

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, BART EHRMAN,

TO GIVE ZOOM TALK ON JANUARY 9, 2020

East Hampton, New York -- Bart Ehrman, a New York Times bestselling historian of Heaven and Hell: A History of the After Life will give a Zoom talk about the origins of heaven and hell and why they endure? His compelling Zoom talk will be hosted by St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. The public is invited to tune in by visiting stlukeseasthampton.org on January 9 at 10:30 AM.

Bart Ehrman will recount the long history of the afterlife, ranging from The Epic of Gilgamesh up to the writings of Augustine, focusing especially on the teachings of Jesus and his early followers. He will discuss ancient guided tours of heaven and hell, in which a living person observes the sublime blessings of heaven for those who are saved and the horrifying torments of hell for the damned. Some of these accounts take the form of near death experiences, the oldest on record, with intriguing similarities to those reported today.

One of Ehrman’s startling conclusions is that there never was a single Greek, Jewish, or Christian understanding of the afterlife, but numerous competing views. Moreover, these views did not come from nowhere; they were intimately connected with the social, cultural, and historical worlds out of which they emerged. Only later, in the early Christian centuries, did they develop into the notions of eternal bliss or damnation widely accepted today.

Bart Ehrman is an American New Testament scholar focusing on textual criticism of the New Testament, the historical Jesus, and the origins and development of early Christianity. He has written and edited 30 books, including three college textbooks. He has also authored six New York Times bestsellers. He is currently the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

After ten years going to this one spot, we don't know where to go to buy a Christmas tree out on the east end? So many places are closed. We don't want to buy it at the stand in EH at HardScrabble. They overcharge. ANY IDEAS?
