I look forward to seeing you tomorrow. The subject might be the possibility of interfaith dialogue. Or it might be the difference between being religious and being spiritual. But let's talk about religion. And our own spiritual journey. Over a beer made by monks.
We may have Bill McGarvey, the editor of BustedHalo, join us tomorrow night. But we do have something excellent planned for November - possibly Astrid Storm and Matthew Moretz (Fr. Matthew of YouTube) will join us.
If you haven't please RSVP. This will help me know what size table to reserve.
Also, I have a beard. I won't be wearing a collar.
This group isn't just for Episcopalians, but for all trying to find their path with some integrity and attention to the infinite that sustains us.
We seek an intelligent and intelligible way of talking about the transcendent, especially over a pint of beer. We seek authentic friendships, mutual encouragement, and collective joy. We're open to all religious identities that seek to develop spiritual beauty in others, who desire some psychological integration, empathy and encouragement. All friends of of God's creation are welcome to participate in the conversation. Every month we'll have some sort of challenging topic that we can discuss. It might include sex and politics. We might quote scripture, if imperfectly. It might not always be Christian Scripture. But there will always be a pint of beer, sometimes made by monks.
