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, October 7, 7 – 9 PM at Giuseppe’s in Haymarket (15120 Washington Street).
October’s Pub Theology will be led by Sara Knight, the Executive Director of the Sweet Julia Grace Foundation. The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation is one of Haymarket Church’s community partners. Here’s a description of the of the organization from their website:
“The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation (SJGF), based in Bristow, VA, is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization, INSPIRED by and in honor of Julia Grace Knight, who passed away in November 2013 from complications related to a rare disease called I-cell. Julia lived 12 beautiful years inspiring everyone who knew her, read about her, and loved her. Despite the storms she faced, Julia knew how to “Dance In The Rain.” She lived in the moment, made life SWEET, and filled hearts with JOY…just by being her.
The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation was founded by Julia Grace’s mom, Sara Knight shortly after Julia passed away. SJGF supports families whose children are facing more than most do in a lifetime. These amazing children show us what it looks like to be true overcomers. They find joy in the midst of their suffering and share their precious smiles with the world during some very difficult life ‘storms’. The simple joys of childhood are often put aside and replaced with hospital visits, surgeries, clinics, medicine, therapy, and adapted equipment to meet their special day-to-day needs. Yet they remain courageous and resilient in the face of it all.”
More details on the topic of Sara’s talk will be coming soon. We are excited to hear her witness to her powerful faith!
