Pub Theology is an opportunity to gather, have meaningful conversations, build relationships, and have a great time. We talk about important topics for faith and life while sharing good food and drink. All perspectives are welcome! Our next gathering will be on Monday, May 6, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at Giuseppe’s in Haymarket (15120 Washington Street).
In the weeks since the global United Methodist Church gathered for General Conference, there has been much discussion about the future of the Methodist movement in this country. The United Methodist Church remains deeply divided on the matter of LGBTQ inclusion, with a large majority of United Methodists in the United States in favor of ordaining openly LGBTQ pastors and allowing United Methodist pastors to celebrate same sex weddings, but a majority of the global church rejecting those positions. In the wake of this, many United Methodists are asking what’s next for us. Is this a turning point for Methodism? Is there a new, exciting future waiting ahead of us? Pastor Jonathan Page of Herndon United Methodist Church will lead May’s Pub Theology gathering, and his topic will be “The Future of Methodism in America.” Jonathan will encourage us to reflect on what God has in store for the future of the Methodist Church. You are invited to Pub Theology on Monday, May 6, at 7:00 PM at Giuseppe’s Ristorante Italiano. Plan to be there for great food, good drinks, and meaningful conversation!
