God, beer, and good conversation: what more could we ask for? This summer I will be hosting “Theology on Tap” at McKeevers Pub, a local McLean favorite. Of course, anyone (over the age of 21) is invited to join our small group. We will gather at the pub every Tuesday night around 7:30 to enjoy a cold beer and talk about popular Old Testament stories and the theology we derive from them. This group will start with a new story each night so if you miss a week there is no need to feel like you will fall behind. We start again with a new topic each time we meet.
The idea behind pub theology is that it offers us the chance to hold our lives as Christians in tension with the world outside of our church walls. It pushes us to take our faith out into a place where God is not always the first thing on people’s minds. It also creates an environment that welcomes new friends into conversations about faith without having to take the scary step of attending a church service. In essence, we are meeting people where they are and offering a chance to engage your faith in a very new, very real way. I hope to see you there!
