We’re going to start celebrating Rochester Pride a little early this week with a wonderful essay by Austen Hartke. In this essay he takes a look at the creation story in Genesis, which is full of pairs and opposites (day and night, male and female, land and water) and invites us to reflect on all that lies in beyond the binary.
“In Genesis, God separates the dry land from the sea. But God also makes marshes, estuaries, and coral reefs.”
Hartke goes on to explore what it means that we are all made in God’s image, drawing on inspiration from other theological thinkers.

We will meet again this week at Fiddlehead Coffee Co. at 5:30 pm for informal conversation, with our discussion on the article taking place from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
Special Note: Once again, Patrick and Samantha are opening Fiddlehead just for our group – plus, they are cooking a ‘family style’ meal for us where we can pay per plate. On the menu is pasta primavera, salad and garlic toast for $15.
If possible – send me a quick email to let me know if you’re coming and plan on eating. No matter what, there will be enough food for everyone. I just thought we could try this RSVP thing out once. Pub Theology this fall is all about trying new things! 🙂
