Theology on Tap via Zoom

May 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Dr. Cindy Caldwell and Pastor Tad Monroe co-host this monthly gathering where we explore and discuss various topics through a theological lens. Theology means the study of the divine and the divine’s relationship to the world, thus we will explore the nature of the divine and the application of that understanding in our world; with both our heads and our hearts. Reading encouraged but not required to attend. Upcoming topics can be seen below. Please join us!

May 27 – 7 p.m. This is our last in the series until Fall/September 2021.

Our Deepest Desires and Most Enduring Commitments: Discussing Faith and Citizenship

Faith and politics: its been a hot topic for a while in America. Surf cable television, navigate through YouTube—these windows into our public life quickly showcase politicians, car mechanics, and grade-school teachers all weighing in on the matter with great passion.
Opinions are strong, stakes are high, and our disagreements generate gale-force intensities. Inevitably, these conflicts speak to what we value most—our deepest desires and most enduring commitments. We are the most religious people in the West while also being insistently secular and avidly technological—a rather amazing combination.
What is “faith” and how does it relate to “citizenship”—not just at an easily calculated, artificial-level but at a soul-deep, everyday-life level? This will be the focus of our conversation this month at Theology on Tap.
Please read this article by Rev. Dr. Serene Jones, President of Union Theological Seminary in preparation for our time: https://reflections.yale.edu/article/faith-and-citizenship-turbulent-times/what-do-we-desire-future-faith-and-citizenship

Normally we meet in a pub but during these times of COVID-19 we have taken Theology on Tap on-line via ZOOM. You can access our meeting at this link. Feel free to have your favorite beverage with you.
