This coming Monday, we are gathering again for Pub Theology “at home” beginning at 6pm on Zoom.
The topic for this session comes from a conversation between Krista Tippett and Parker Palmer, following a recently rebroadcasted 2003 episode of Tippett’s podcast, “On Being” called “The Soul in Depression”. She and Palmer talk through some of the ways we find life and support during difficult seasons of life.
[Krista Tippett is the founder and CEO of “The On Being Project”, she is the host of podcasts “On Being” and “Becoming Wise”; and curator for “The Civil Conversations Project”. (onbeing.org/our-story/krista-tippett/). Parker Palmer is a teacher, author, and founder and senior partner emeritus of the Center for Courage & Renewal. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parker_Palmer)]
I look forward to hearing your reflections on Monday!

This week’s topic comes from author Stephanie Saldaña, a resident of Jerusalem. She recently published a story of her experience in Bethlehem during Christmas this year: http://www.americamagazine.org/voices/stephanie-saldana. Give it a read ahead of time as you are able. I look forward to hearing your responses.
Come join our next “Pub Theology (at home)” discussion tomorrow night on Zoom. Seasonally speaking, it’s Advent, and we have some timely reflections from Pastor Tim Brown, whom we have leaned on in the past for inspiration. Check out his recent post: reluctantxtian.com/2020/12/03/december-3rd-no-going-back-beloved-and-no-mapping-out-a-specific-future/
Come with some “Advent Inklings”, if you are able. Don’t miss the song that Pastor Tim shares at the end, “The Longer I Run” by Peter Bradley Adams. This is a new artist for me, but I appreciate his songwriting and musical style. I hope you do, too.
I’ll open our Zoom “room” around 6pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org at least an hour beforehand for the link. Jump in around 6 then and we’ll plan for about an hour together.
Tomorrow evening we are gathering again at 6pm on Zoom.
This week, with the Thanksgiving holiday approaching and the discouraging Coronavirus trends (among other continuing struggles), we’re trying something different. Instead of reading a post or sermon, I invite you to come as you are and (1) share in time to catch up together, and (2) bring any lingering questions you have about faith and/or life as the Church in an “ask the Pastor Q&A”. I surely won’t have all the answers, but perhaps we might enjoy hearing from one another on this late November Monday.
Zoom information will be shared via email; contact email@example.com for the link. See you there!

The topic for our discussion will be about trust, and some of the ways we think about trusting (or struggling to trust) God. Read Pastor Colette Broady Grund’s 2014 blog post ahead of time, and come join the “table”, ready to reflect, listen, and attend to divinity in our midst: https://www.boldcafe.org/faking-trust/.
Pub Theologians — it has been far too long since we’ve gathered! I look forward to our meeting this coming Monday, again on Zoom, starting at 6pm.
Christmas is in just 64 days. How is that possible? Yet, it’s not too early to begin thinking theologically about this winter festival that has become so central to our contemporary expression of the Christian faith. Over the weekend, spend some time reading and reflecting upon the following post from Bishop John Shelby Spong (of the Episcopal tradition) that opens us to some varying ways of thinking about Jesus and the stories of his life:
Sunday, September 13th marks the fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost in the Revised Common Lectionary. This year, the scriptures for this day focus on forgiveness, especially the Gospel reading, Matthew 18:21-35. For our “Pub Theology at Home”, please read the Gospel as well as the following sermon manuscript from the Reverend Nate Sutton, who serves Peace Lutheran Church in Puyallup, Washington. I look forward to our discussion!
