“Theology on Tap” – Sept. 7

Our next gathering of “Theology on Tap” will be Thursday evening, Sept. 7th at 6:00 (at Heirloom Restaurant). We’ll be discussing a topic that has perplexed and bewildered Christians for 2000 years:  war and peace. On the one hand, Jesus calls us to be peacemakers and to love our enemies. On the other, he also calls us to love our neighbor as ourselves, which may necessitate defending ourselves and others in war. The Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated film Hacksaw Ridge explores this rich topic.

Hacksaw Ridge tells the true story of Desmond Doss who, due to his Christian faith, was a pacifist and conscientious objector to war, and yet enlisted in the army during World War II to serve as a combat medic — eventually to be awarded the Medal of Honor. The film was in theaters at the end of 2016, and is now available on Netflix, Red Box, and other venues for viewing. I encourage you to watch it if you can. But even if you’re unable to see the movie, join us next Thursday, Sept. 7th for a drink, delicious food, wonderful discussion, and great fellowship.
