Pub Theology

Wednesday, August 30th


We invite you to join us for Pub Theology as we gather together in our new location, The Mucky Duck located at 2425 Norfolk St. If you have wanted to come to a gathering but have not yet, we encourage you to come tomorrow night – it’s a great time to start!

This is our first gathering for Pub Theology for the Fall. Come and join us for a pint and some great discussion based on questions that are theologically, socially, and relationally relevant.

This Week We Will Discuss…

1) Jeremiah 33:3: “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” If you could ask God anything, what “great and unsearchable things” might you want to know?

2)“This life of yours which you are living is not merely a piece of the entire existence, but is in a certain sense the whole,” quantum pioneer Erwin Schrödinger wrote. Is this an overstatement? In what way(s) might this be true?

3)Buddhist scientist Neil Theise argues that all living beings on Earth are a single organism animated by a single consciousness that permeates the universe. Maria Popover notes that the challenge is how to reconcile Theise’s view with our overwhelming subjective experience as autonomous selves, distinct in space and time — an experience magnified by the vanity of free will, which keeps on keeping us from seeing clearly our nature as particles in a self-organizing whole. Are you open to Theise’s view, or pulled more in the direction of free-will individualism?

4)Sixty years ago MLK Jr. gave his famous “I have a dream” speech. In that speech he said: “We have also come to his hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism.” What issue(s) do you feel currently require a “fierce urgency of now” but it seems most folks are happy to take the “tranquilizing drug of gradualism”? What role do you feel churches or communities of faith should take in addressing said issue(s)?
