Pub Theologians,

This week, we are talking about the unhelpful conflation of cultural identity with particular Christian communities, specifically Scandinavian heritage and the Lutheran branch of Christianity.

In late April, The Rev. Dr. Joelle Colville-Hanson from the NE Iowa Synod of the ELCA wrote a great blog post describing a recent social media trend known as #DecolonizeLutheranism. Please read her post ahead of our gathering, if you are able, and also search Twitter and Facebook for instances of folks using the hashtag, in order to get a sense of how people are talking about this topic. The blog can be found at blog.neiasynod.org/2016/04/lutheran-stereotypes/

We will be gathering at our usual spot as of late: Life’s Too Short (LTS) Brewing Co. in Rochester, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. Hope to see you there!
