Pub Ministry March 8

Join us on Wednesday, March 8th as we again partner with Christ Lutheran Church of Oreland for Pub Theology Night at our new meeting place, The Broad Axe Tavern on Route 73 in Amber at 6:30pm for faith, fellowship, food and more. If you plan on attending please RSVP to Pastor Suloff or the church office by Tuesday, March 7th so that we can be sure to reserve enough space at The Broad Axe. Here’s what we will be discussing:

Icebreakers:

  • If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?
  • If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose and why?
  • If you could visit any place in the world, where would you choose to go and why

Discussion Questions:

  • Pope Francis in a sermon once said, “We will not find the Lord unless we truly accept the marginalized! Truly the Gospel of the marginalized is where our credibility is at stake, where it is found, and where it is revealed.” What do you think he means by this? Do you agree with him?
  • “True religion is not about possessing the truth. No religion does that. It is rather an invitation into a journey that leads one toward the mystery of God. Idolatry is religion pretending that is has all the answers.” – John Shelby Spong. Share your reaction to this comment, and how it compares to the view of religion you were raised with. Compare with this statement from Mahatma Gandhi: “God has no religion.”
  • “Let your kindness be like the rain, that cares not whom it falls upon.” – Talib al Habib. Compare that piece of wisdom from a Muslim with these words from Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew (5:43-45) “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” How might these words be of value today? What is the role of kindness in creating a just and compassionate society?
