August 1: “Get the to a nunnery?” The Benedict Option with Dr. Alden Bass

alden-with-chickenOn August 1, our topic is: ”Get thee to a nunnery?” Should we all make the Benedict Option?

In recent months a national spotlight has been turned on the book “The Benedict Option.” Is monasticism the faithful response to a troubled world? Our speaker this month is Alden Bass, professor of theology at SLU and a founding member of the “Lotus House” a “new monastic” community in North St. Louis.

Theology on Tap seeks to create a “low pressure” environment for conversations about faith, ethics, politics, and life today.  Join us and bring friends.

Theology on Tap meets upstairs at Dressel’s Pub at 6:30pm on the First Tuesday of each month. Click for a map
