  43. Pub Theology, Asheville, NC

    Our shifting Western culture has been greatly shaped by the truth as well as the distortions within Christianity. Many of us have also been influenced by other cultures and forms of spirituality, and we have profound insights as well as lingering questions.

    Join us on the off-Mondays of regular Open Table discussions (, 6 PM at Scully’s Bar & Grille in Asheville (, to focus more specifically on progressive theological issues related to biblical and other spiritual texts, along with the exploration of spiritual community in a post-Christian culture.

    Bring your perspectives and questions, your faith and doubt.
