Living in the Tension – Mon. 4/22

We will be meeting for our regular Living in the Tension gathering this Monday, April 22, at 7pm. In light of the events last week with the tragedy in Boston, we wanted to discuss ideas about our humanity with regards to our respective faith backgrounds. Are we inherently evil and damaged individuals who occasionally happen to do good? Is there something to the idea of total depravity? Are we good and beautiful people who mess up every now and then? Connected to this conversation, we also wanted to discuss what it means to be a beloved child of God and the implications that has for our sense of self and our view of and interactions with others.

We will be meeting in Room 124 on 5255 N. Ashland Ave. at 7pm. If you’re available beforehand, we’ll be gathering at Lady Gregory’s on 5260 N. Clark St. at 5:15pm to hang out and have a bite to eat.

We hope to see you there!

Much love.
