St. Mark’s will launch a monthly series called “Theology on Tap” on Wednesday, Sept. 7, at the Alehouse, 226 W. Sixth St. in Moscow. The gathering will run from 5 to 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month.
“Jesus did much of his teaching with friends in social situations, around a table—a model to be taken seriously,” said Robin Biffle, rector of St. Mark’s. “Many people have been treated badly by churches and by people in churches, so this gives us an opportunity to meet people in another setting.”
She described the format as “a place to ask all the questions that you were afraid to ask.” The public is invited and no RSVP is necessary.
“I’ll be the one with a collar and a pitcher of beer—and I’ll have a little ‘Theology on Tap’ sign on the table,” Mother Robin said.
