Some of  the best conversations occur around a table over a pint of beer.  Folks open up, ask deeper questions, listen more intently, speak less defensively and more existentially. 

Theology Pub is a gathering for discussion of our spiritual questions and searchings.  It is more about our questions - and those of others - than about having right answers.  It is a gathering for people of diverse perspectives, with respect given and received. 

Monthly meetings will focus on a topic or a question. 

The Log Jam (see map below) in Grand Ledge is our intended pub.  On the 1st Monday evening of each month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. it could be our Theology Pub.  I am currently looking for input from those who might be interested before setting a start date.  Please contact me if that includes you. 



NOTE: It is not required that you drink a beer or that you believe in a definite God;
only that you will talk with those who might do both.


  Topics and Presenters will come from those who are curious and willing. 


Rick McKenzie is the host.

I am a Lutheran pastor, retired from the parish but still full of questions about God and life. Yes, I am a follower of Jesus Christ - the Jesus who listened to and walked with all people
