Awkward Conversations about Life, Faith & Culture

Brews and Views is a new monthly group forming to discuss important topics in live, faith and culture over a beer or other drink of your choice. As divisions grow in the world around us we feel it’s time to learn how to talk to each other again, even if we disagree. The goal of these events is not to convince anyone of a specific perspective, but to passionately share what we believe in a safe environment while others have the opportunity to do the same. We believe that the issues in the world need to be discussed and different opinions need to be heard while still enjoying friendships over a beer.
We intend to begin primarily with members from Journey as we “work out the kinks” and learn how to develop this kind of environment among ourselves. Once we feel we have done that, we intend to open it up to the public for them to join us, too. We don’t expect everyone to agree. In fact, it won’t be very helpful if we do. But, we believe we will begin to make a difference in our community when we re-learn the virtues of listening to divergent views and being able to share our own views in a way that brings understanding instead of shame.
We’re not exactly sure where this will lead, but we believe it’s worth a try. Our first meeting will be with those that are interested in joining this group to do some planning and share the vision. While we have an idea of how it should be structured, your input in this meeting will shape it’s final roll out.
Sign up below if you are interested in being part of this first meeting so we know how many to save seats for.
