June 16: “St. Louis Farewell” with the Rev. Dr. Ben Sanders and the Rev. Dr. Adam Ployd

On June 16 theology on tap will meet at 6:00pm in Tower Grove Park.

Theology on Tap seeks to create a “low pressure” environment for conversations about faith, ethics, politics, and life today. We encourage anyone to attend, whether Episcopalian or not.

We will have this month’s theology on Tap in Tower Grove Park at the “Tunica Picnic Area” near the center of the park, and the big lawn where yoga happens during the Farmer’s market. Click here for a map.

This special edition of Theology on Tap will be a way to say a fond farewell to two of our favorite presenters. The Rev. Dr. Adam Ployd and the Rev. Dr. Ben Sanders will both be with us. Both have accepted calls that will take them from St. Louis this summer.

Together we will reflect on the challenge of being a person of faith committed to change in St. Louis. We will theologize about this moment in this place. What is God’s call to faithful St. Louisans in the months and years ahead especially around questions of race, equity, and building spiritual community?

This event is BYOE (Bring your own everything). You’re welcome to bring some food and a beverage of your choice (following park rules, note that glass bottles are prohibited.). There will be limited picnic table seating, but we encourage you to bring your own chair as well. We will follow Holy Communion’s outdoor gathering protocols, and ask that you check your symptoms before you come and keep physically distant from folks not in your own household. (Masks are optional for the vaccinated). Feel free to order and pick up some food and a beverage from our partners at Schlafly.

We ask you to register for purposes of contact tracing.
