Pub Theology is the name of an opportunity to explore life around the table, with a beverage and some good friends.
Where it started is unknown. Who it started it is unknown. But what is known is it gives those who join the group an opportunity to discuss current events, a question or some other issue that someone wants to bring to the table.
I can remember when I was in college, we gathered at the local sandwich shop and had similar discussions based on movies or other current events.
Last Night, we started our discussion talking about the incident at Penn State. I thought that it was a very interesting discussion. What came about the discussion was that people are aware of situations that exist, in what I call, ‘Under Their Umbrella’. But if the issue is outside their umbrella, they are not as familiar with the situation or incident. In fact, it might even be hard to understand or even comprehend.
How do you discuss current events? Have you ever thought about starting a Theology on Tap in your area?
