Theology on Tap gathers on the first Tuesday of each month for good food and good conversation at Dressel’s tavern in the Central West end. Some of us are members of local Episcopal churches, but not all of us. We seek to create a “low pressure” environment to invite your non-churchy friends for conversations about faith, ethics, politics, and life today.
Theology on Tap May 7: Better Together? UPDATE: We’re Still ON!
On Monday, May 6 the Better Together campaign decided to pull the statewide ballot initiative. BUT folks from Unite STL will still be on-hand tonight to talk about the future conversation of a city/county merger. We’ll process together what we learned, and where the conversation might go next (because this is likely NOT the last you’ve heard of the plan). We hope to see you at 6:30pm.
What would it mean to unite the city and county? Join a conversation about the “Better Together” proposal. We’ll hear from representatives of the campaign, and from the Hon. Joe Adams, who is part of an alternative plan called the “Freeholders Proposal.” It promised to be a wide ranging, and perhaps a bit contentious few months ahead for St. Louis as various proposals are weighed surrounding the merger.
Last Month: “Harry Potter and the Sacred Story” with the rector and Prof. Hannah Shanks
Listen to Theology on Tap from April 2: Harry Potter and the Sacred Story
For a generation of readers, Harry Potter has become an important touchpoint in questions of hope, love, and working against evil. Together we’ll ask “How does story become sacred? What does it mean to read Harry Potter alongside Scripture?” Feel free to wear your favorite Harry Potter regalia, and come for a discussion about the relationship of Harry to faith.
