Theology on Tap!

Everyone is invited to join us at Theology on Tap!

Theology on Tap is held at McNellie's (409 East 1st Street) every 2nd Tuesday of the month, the next meeting is August 14 at 8 p.m. They meet upstairs. The topic this month is on the Eucharist, and Fr. Gregory Gier from Holy Family Cathedral will be speaking.

He will speak for about 20 minutes then he opens the floor for questions/comments. Everyone is welcome to participate in the discussion. The group understands that everyone is on a journey of discovery of God's will in their lives and many are searching...just who is this God and what is the church and how does this all fit in with my life?

People start gathering at 7, have supper or a beer and mingle. Come hoist a brew and ponder the mysteries of God!

The next meeting will be September 11, same place, topic: Charismatic movement.

U2 Eucharist

In response to the movement to Make Poverty History, Trinity Episcopal Church will celebrate a special U2 Eucharist at 5pm on June 17, 2007. This U2 Eucharist will feature music from U2’s catalog, including such favorites as Where the Streets Have No Name, Yahweh, Love and Peace, Pride, and One.

The U2 Eucharist has recently received international media attention, from newspapers to BBC World Service presentations, for its innovative use of the band’s biblically rich lyrics and social justice message, for its ability to bring together people of many different generations in a context of worship, and as a tool for raising awareness and empowering communities to respond to the Millennium Development Goals.

Every nation in the world has endorsed the Millennium Development Goals to eradicate extreme poverty and global AIDS, and many churches, including the Episcopal Church, have endorsed them as well. Accordingly, the offering will benefit ChildHope, which through its work is also engaged in realizing the Millennium Development Goals.

Rethinking Family

Tomorrow morning the Emergent Cohort for Tulsa is meeting. 10:30am @ Agora (Fontana Shopping Center) with lunch to follow.

Topic: Rethinking the Family for the 21st Century.
Discussion Leader: Mark Riddle

What does it mean to lead a community of people today as together we raise kids. If you read this far and the thought entered your head, "This topic doesn't apply to me" because you aren't a youth/children's pastor or your children are older, then I would suggest that you are simply and completely wrong. I don't say this as a way to convince you to come, rather I say this to point out that you have been infected by compartmentalized thinking that has led to the abandonment of children in our culture.

Also, Slogan's like, "It's the parent's job to spiritually raise kids" may have been helpful to raise awareness for congregations and parents in the past but it will no longer work in the future because it's probably never actually been true. We'll be talking about why tomorrow.

Hope to see you there!

Preaching Reimagined

At our next gathering, Thursday, February 1st, we're going to spend some time thinking through preaching, trying to converse around some themes Doug Pagitt highlights in his book, Preaching Reimagined. While you probably don't have time to buy the book and read it, there are a couple reviews that I think are worth a quick read before we gather. Here's one from the Christian Century and another from The Ooze.

We'll see where the conversation takes us! Look forward to seeing you there!
