Theology Pub Night
Have you wanted to find a place to enjoy a nice cold beer, cider, and/or pop * (that's 'soda' or 'cola' to our American friends), snack on popcorn and chips, and listen to theological perspectives on a variety of topics? Then our Theological Pub night is the place you need to try out. On the last Friday of the month Wycliffe, in partnership with The Meeting House, provides an ideal location to grab a cold beverage, mingle with others, and join in a spirited conversation on a range of topics. We start with a time of socializing and then move into an interview with someone in the know about the topic and then open the floor for questions and answers.

Guest: David Reed Interviewer: Steve Hewko
An interesting night of discussion on things that go BUMP in the night. Two-thirds of the close to fifty people in attendance raised their hand when asked if they had experienced or knew someone who experienced a paranormal event. The topics ranged from the difference between demonic possession and ghostly encounters and the friendly/protective ghosts versus the maleovolent. David Reed, Professor Emeritus of Pastoral Theology at Wycliffe College, has studied the paranormal and was consulted for forty episodes of Ghostly Encounters, which ran from 2005 to 2011, shared his opinion of how we should view these phenomenons.

Guest: Bruxy Cavey Interviewer: Steve Hewko
We were excited to host Meeting House pastor, Bruxy Cavey, for a broad-ranging fireside chat on religion, theology and culture. Bruxy shared his heart and thoughts around issues of personal belief, scripture, the implications of the cross, and application of theology to issues of peace and all the way to speculations on existence of extra-terrestrials. Insightful as always, Bruxy helped us navigate and explore these complex themes.

Guest: Jonathan Pageau Interviewer: Jordan Duerrstein
Jonathan, possibly the only icon carver in North America, talks to Jordan about his fascinating journey from being a good ol' baptist boy to the Eastern Orthodox Church. After being disillusioned with contemporary art and giving up being an artist he discovered the hesychastic tradition, a mystical tradition of contemplative prayer in the Eastern Orthodox Church, and found himself being drawn to iconography.
