Thanks for a Great First Theology on Tap!

Thanks to the nearly 20 young adults who joined us for Theology on Tap this Monday!  We all had some delicious food and drinks, enjoyed a surprise barbershop quartet performance thanks to a birthday at a table near us, and shared some great thoughts on the new pope.  Among the highlights:  the realization that Pope Francis isn’t really doing anything new when it comes to moral statements, theology, or treatment of the marginalized (check out the sainted Pope Pius X, who said “I was born poor, I have lived poor, and I wish to die poor”); thoroughly enjoying the fact that Pope Francis knows how to tango (THAT is new for a pope); and a heavy call to reconsider our standards for what “simple” means (Does Catholic culture have different standards for simplicity than the rest of society?  Is that how Jesus acted?).

All in all, it was a great night and we can’t wait for the next events!  Here’s what we have planned so far:

Tuesday, May 28th.  “Common Misconceptions Between Catholics and Protestants”  

Led by Pastor Scott Geminn of Trinity Lutheran Church and Newman Director Cindy Cheshire

Tuesday, June 11.  Planned:  “The Spirituality of Imperfection”

Leader TBA

Tuesday, June 25.  “Sacraments and the Young Adult:  How They Actually Apply to Our Lives”

Led by Fr. Steve Marcoux

Tuesday, July 9.  “Theology of the Body”
