Monday, June 23rd

Hi all,

We are meeting tonight for pub theology, 5:30-7pm, at the Tap House.

This week, read this interesting article critiquing the “Empire Expansion=Theft” idea that is a common narrative in North America today:

www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/06/18/us-wealth-based-on-theft-progressives-and-their-dangerous-view-america/

A few questions to spark discussion:

What are your initial thoughts about the author’s point?

Do you think the good that has come out of our country’s formation has outweighed the bad?

Do we, as people of faith, have any certain responsibilities when it comes to lifting up minority voices and speaking on behalf of oppressed peoples?

How did Jesus respond to the complex realities of empire in 1st Century Palestine?

See you there!
