Be part of the Conversation for Theology on Tap with Karma Lekshe Tsomo

One of the things we miss most about Theology on Tap in person is the back and forth discussion. In the pandemic online world, we can still hear from speakers, but it has been hard to create room for discussion. We want to invite you to recreate that space with us.

For the discussion, we want to ask two things of you:

FIRST: ASK QUESTIONS LIVE.

Use the comments on Youtube or Facebook to share your thoughts and ask a question. We know, we know, midwesterners hate drawing attention to themselves, but we have designed this format specifically so we can hear from you. Please think of a question beforehand, ask during the presentation.

SECOND: BUILD A TABLE DISCUSSION

Consider creating your own “table” to talk with friends after the presentation. You could use ZoomGoogle Meet, Facebook Rooms, or your own favorite video chat. Invite a group of friends to watch with you (live, or later on), and sign in to talk.

Here are the discussion questions. Who do you want to talk with?

  1. Where do you locate yourself on the religious spectrum? To what degree have you encountered traditions beyond your own? Have you been to a Buddhist or Hindu temple for a service? What was it like?
  2. Are there traditions beyond your own that are important for you? Do you consider yourself a Buddha-palian?
  3. For Karma Lekshe Tsomo working to amplify the voices and rights of women in her tradition has been a part of her path. Are there ways in which you are working for “reform from within” in your religious tradition? In your workplace? elsewhere?
