Canterbury this Week: March 5-11


Tuesday, March 6, 7-8:30 pm: Grace Hour at Bohemeo’s
708 Telephone Rd, Houston, TX 77023
The intention of the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign was to set before people’s eyes “the plight of America’s poor of all races” in order to unsettle the unjust systems holding them in dehumanizing poverty. Today, 50 years after the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign, Christians are still called to be disturbers of a false peace – the sort of oppressive power that attains peace by silencing the voices of those on the margins and keeping them out of sight.  Join us as we continue to explore theologies of liberation through the lens of the work of James H. Cone and The Poor People’s Campaign.

7:00-8:30 pm, The Skeptics Supper Club
La Madeleine, 10001 Westheimer Rd, Suite 2123, Houston, TX 77042
The Skeptics Supper Club is a monthly small group that comes together over dinner to discuss those questions that you might be afraid are too irreverent, too basic, or too out-of-bounds. Have you ever wondered what Christians are really talking about when they talk about “salvation”? Maybe you’ve noticed that different people seem to mean different things when they talk about being “saved.” How do we make sense of this? Bring your own questions about the nature and meaning of “salvation” to the table.
We have reserved the big room in the back of the restaurant. Skeptical friends are welcome. Dinner is on Canterbury.

Sunday, March 11, 6:30-8:30 pm: The Gathering @ St. Luke the Evangelist
