Hello, I'm Chris from Belleville and Blackhawk. I would like to get into the practice of understanding other perspectives before my kids start asking me to understand that their perspective is different from my own.
Want to talk about life's big questions?
Gray's Theology is a place to talk about stuff that matters. We meet at Gray's Tied House in Verona (a place with lovely craft beers, as well as good eats) on the last Thursday of every month at 8pm. We talk about the traditional big questions, with an eye to how our different answers impact real life.
We're a reasonably diverse group. We have theists of Christian, Jewish, and other backgrounds, athiests and agnostics, and folks who don't fit neatly in any of those categories. Thus, no need to panic--this is not an indoctrination effort. It's too open-ended to indoctrinate anyone. It's for people with diverse views and approaches to life who want a chance to think, talk, and be challenged. The format: (a.) One of the organizers introduces some questions. (b.) We discuss. (c.) The organizer closes with some parting thoughts. The rules are: Disagreement is fine. Respect is necessary. Everyone should get a chance to talk. No one is forced to talk. Be curious and ask questions.
All are welcome. There's an approval process, but that's just to make sure you're not a computer.
