A week from Thursday is Ascension Day, the Christian holy day when we remember that God has given Christ dominion over all the earth to rule as our Lord and King.
Suffice it to say, Christians live in the tension between these two days:
To whom do we pledge our allegiance?
How do we relate to the State?
What is our obligation to fellow Christians in other countries? Especially if they’re our enemies?
When can Christians say yes to war? When must they say no?
This Thursday night at Pub Theology we’ll think through questions like these.
Our special guest will be Marco Santangelo, who serves as the chief librarian at the new George Washington Presidential Library. In addition to that vantage point, Marco also has his Master of Divinity and his Master of Theology from Asbury Seminary and Princeton respectively.
Once again, we’ll meet at Forge Brew Works at 7:00.
You can find them on Facebook too, here.
It’s just off the Fairfax County Parkway on Terminal Road. You can find directions here.
If you’re in the area, come join us.
Oh, and it’s BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair).
