They should have their project all wrapped up within a week or two, so we will be back. Stay tuned for an announcement of the February speaker. We will plan to meet again on Tuesday February 2nd.

Wishing you all a merry end to the Christmas season,

Nov 3: Building a Dia De Los Muertos Altar tonight at Theology on Tap

Tonight as part of our discussion of the Afterlife, Angels, Demons, All Saints and All Souls, we’ll be building a simple Dia De Los Muertos altar. The tradition comes from Latin America, when the beginning of November is marked by remembering loved ones. If you are able to do so, please bring a photo, a favorite candy, or a stuffed animal, anything that reminds you of someone you loved who has died. You can also bring sugar skulls and fun Dia De Los Muertos decorations if you have them.
