We are people with questions...sometimes more questions than answers.

The purpose of this group is to get together and talk through things.  No, we won't get it all figured out, but isn't the mystery of life truly one of its joys? Our focus is spirituality and other topics that affect our emotional and spiritual well-being, since these two things are so intimately tied together.

We have two parallel groups operating under the name "Open Table."  The first group is the "main" group that Jeremy has been hosting for 4+ years.  We have discussions on topics that regard spirituality, but usually do not have any particularly religious focus.  The second group hosted by Ron is called "Pub Theology" which attempts to take a fresh look at some aspects of Christianity and call into question most of the old assumptions.  Each group meets every other Monday.

We want you to feel welcome, no matter your background, at both of these groups.  Those who have shared our Table include Agnostics, Atheists, Buddhists, Christians, though a majority are probably those who are simply on a spiritual journey but don't know what to label it.

Our one request is that all of those in the discussion remain respectful of one another. The Open Table is a judgement-free zone, which doesn't mean you have to agree with anyone here, but that you remain respectful of where every person is on their journey in life.
