work and mission of the Kirk extends far beyond Sunday mornings. We are called
to bring meaning into the lives of individuals and our community. This meaning
comes through ritual, honest dialogue, education and relationships. We invite
all in the community to participate in these events – we welcome those of all
faiths and no faith, those questioning or just curious…(for more on who we
welcome see our Open and Affirming statement)
We believe that a life of faith is a life engaged with the world around us. As we pray each week "thy kindom come on earth as it is in heaven," we see ourselves as kindom builders - doing the work of God in our world. This page is full of resources to help us all on this journey - books to teach us and make us question as well as articles that inform and blogs that challenge assumptions or help us to see another point of view.
Jesus called us all to make the first last and the last first and so many of these resources seek to do just that, to center voices and issues and margins. We believe resources like these, combined with worship, silence, community and action will lead us all individually and collectively to grow. Come grow with us!
Once a month we gather in a casual environment to discuss
God and the world (and God in the world). Topics have included: heaven and
hell, liberation theology, world religions, evil, how not to speak of God,
process theology, body vs soul and more!
Our next gathering will be on Sunday, October 9 from 4-6 p.m. at 730 South Bar and Grill, located at 730 S. University Blvd. Childcare is available at the Kirk.
This conversation and all Theology on Taps are open to all – including those outside of the Kirk. If you have friends who have been asking these questions or friends from other faiths invite them to join us. With every voice our conversation grows richer.
Our book group meets every few weeks at 6:30 p.m. in the Choir Room as we engage in an open discussion of a common book. Our next book will be Speaking of Faith: Why Religion Matters - and How to Talk About It by Krista Tippet. Our first meeting for this book will be in January. All are welcome to join us in our discussion.
