Lent: Discipline, Discipleship, or just a Drag?
Updated 02.18.2017: This event filled to capacity in less than a day. Life happens and people always cancel. A wait list is forming. See the email link above. We will be the exclusive guests of the new Victor 23 Brewing in Vancouver. Seating is limited.
Kick off Lent by coming for an evening of beer and conversation on the eve of Ash Wednesday! This 40-day period is a time when Christians traditionally engage in heightened reflection or personal discipline in order to become closer to Christ in anticipation of Easter—but often we relegate Lenten practices to things like giving up sweets or (God forbid!) beer. We'll investigate the various disciplines Christians have used, explore whether they still carry meaning for us, and wonder about new ways to make this season rich with meaning.
An exclusive, private party opening for Messiah's ToT at the new:
Victor 23 Brewing, 2905 St. John's Blvd., Vancouver, WA
We will be sole patrons of the pub for our event. Early birds may arrive starting at 6pm. Though the pub does not ordinarliy serve food on Tuesdays, the kitchen will be open for us. Click here for the menu.
Pr. Peter and Intern Pastor Mary will send the links to preparatory homework in a separate email to the address you use to register. These links will go out 7 days or so in advance of the event. Please share the links with every person for whom you have registered.
New Cover Charge $ Amount
Yes, it's true. We lifted the per person cover charge to $2/event. Room rentals are rising everywhere. We also use the cover charge to pay our guest speakers a small honorarium and cover their food and beverages. Thank you for your understanding.
We hope to see you at this Fat Tuesday iteration of Theology on Tap.
Beers and Blessings to you,
Team TOT - Pr. Peter and Intern Pr. Mary
