"Good things happen when we sit down at the same table together and talk honestly about things that matter - and frankly, having a beer doesn't hurt." -Bryan Berghoef
This three week course explores what Pub Theology is (and isn't), the art of conversation, and practical tips for starting your own Pub Theology group. We will explore various models of pub conversation groups around the country and the world, and also discuss what Pub Theology isn't. We will explore tips on facilitating/leading group dialogue. And we will cover practical tips like where to meet, how to get the word out, how to organize your content, how to cross-pollinate with other communities/organizations, etc.
Rev. Bryan Berghoef is a pastor, writer, and pub theologian, and author of the book, Pub Theology: Beer, Conversation, and God. He insists that good things happen when we sit around the table together and talk about things that matter, and what better setting than at the pub, over a pint. Bryan has been facilitating weekly pub conversations for the past seven years, recently in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC, and currently in Holland and Saugatuck, Michigan.
