Today’s coffeeshop eavesdropping

Conversation one: a law student asking a philosophy student whether, by Plato’s theory of perfect forms, there could ever be perfect justice. Philosophy student’s take seemed to be that Plato would say there could, but it was unlikely because so many things would have to be perfect to get there, but even so, keeping the idea of perfect justice in mind would mean one would get much closer to it than if one didn’t keep it in mind.

Conversation two: someone talking about being drawn to social justice as her form of ministry at her church, and how she’s working to convince others there that she should pursue same instead of more “traditional” forms of ministry.

Sometimes people are pretty cool, you know?
