Pub Theologians,

We will be back at HyVee North’s Market Cafe (on 37th St NW) on Monday from 5:30-7, and will be finishing up Hart’s book. If you’re able to do so, please read Chapter 9 and the epilogue, and come ready to listen and reflect.

See you there.

Hello, Theologians!

Thank you for your continuing work through Drew Hart’s book this fall. I know he has presented many difficulties for us to consider, but I am deeply appreciative of your continued presence, even without any clear answers as of yet. We are almost to the end, though, and will be discussing Chapter 8 this week. (

Give it a read as you’re able, and you of course are welcome to join the discussion even if you haven’t been able to read it ahead of time.

We’ll be at HyVee North Market Cafe again this week, from 5:30-7, with the discussion starting around 6. See you there.

Hey crew,

Pub Theology is on for Monday evening at HyVee North Marketcafe from 5:30-7. Our topic this week comes from our ongoing series in Drew Hart’s book Trouble I’ve Seen, specifically, Chapter 7, “The Lure of Status and Respect”. This one is a short chapter, but hits some important points about power, control, and pressure to conform to culture norms that reinforce imbalances therein.

Here’s a link to the pages:

See you there.

Hi all,

Come and join us again on Monday, October 30th, at HyVee North Market Cafe from 5:30-7. 

Thank you for your thoughtful responses and willingness to risk difficult conversations. This week’s topic takes us into some of the historical context that has formed our current circumstance, and what lenses we’ve applied in the past (that could also be applied now). We’ll be drawing from Trouble I’ve Seen, Chapter 4. Give it a read ahead of time. (link if needed:

The final books are arriving on Monday, so I’ll bring them along for you. If you can swing $12, that would be great.

See you there.
