Theology by the Glass

A summer series of monthly conversations held at Cafe 22, located at 336 Broadway at Hargrave. 

Every year as we move through the Spring season, many of our events and regular activities begin to move into summer break mode. This is actually the very point at which we launch Theology by the Glass, a series of monthly gatherings that runs from May through September.

*Our final session for the season is set for Tuesday September 13, with Dr. John Badertscher leading our conversation – John was a professor in the Religious Studies department at the University of Winnipeg for 26 years, and is the author of Fragments of Freedom, a memoir charting his growing awareness of the evil of racism, and his engagement with the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. When we asked him to engage us in a conversation about those experiences, he replied “So long as you don’t want me to get us stuck in the 1960s…” It will be interesting to see where he lead us! In preparation for this session, he has asked that we read “Letter from Birmingham Jail” by Martin Luther King, Jr. The letter can be downloaded as a free PDF by clicking here.

These evenings are about the most relaxed approach to Christian education imaginable. People gather at 7:30pm at Cafe 22 (336 Broadway at Hargrave), and we stay relatively focused on our topic for about an hour, at which point we begin to chase all sorts of conversational tangents until everyone is ready to leave.
