On a busy night in Traverse City, fresh off the Fourth of July and on the eve of the Cherry Festival, a few of us found our way to a pub for some reasonable conversation. It was good to be back at Pub Theology tonight after a couple week hiatus. The Saugatuck IPA was a welcome addition to the menu, and we had a good evening of discussion.
1. If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have one item, what would it be?
2. Are all spiritual experiences legitimate?
3. What is happiness?
4. “The very meaningfulness of rational discourse depends on God, as everything depends on God.”
5. If our world belongs to God, is the idea of private property a contradiction of this?
6. Man exists in a state of distance from the world that he nonetheless remains in the midst of.
Can the distance be overcome?
7. What really matters?
We shared some experiences and perspectives, some sips and some tips.
We also celebrated the arrival of Pub Theology, the book! You can buy your copy locally at Brew, and soon at Horizon Books – both downtown. You can join us at the Book Launch next week Thursday, July 12 at Brew, from 6-8pm, preceding our normal Pub Theology conversation.
In the meantime, share your thoughts on the above topics!
