TOP: Civil Religion

There are many aspects of our national life that bear a striking resemblance to religious practice. We'll talk about the liturgy of our common life as people of the USA, and the differences between Civil Religion and our theological tradition. What does it mean to be a member of the Body of Christ and a citizen of a nation? How do we participate in the rituals of civic life as people of faith? Are there ever conflicts between the two, and/or places they dovetail perfectly?

 

Join us on the patio at Emmett's (on Brockway in downtown Palatine) for an evening of conversation! Part small-group, part Bible Study, part fun, TOP is a great way to go deeper as we think about how our faith affects our lives. Food and beverages are available for all budgets, and we always learn something!
