Sales Have Ended
Faith, Food, Friday - featuring "The God Squad" - is a project of The Village Square, devoted to building community across divides.
As we find ourselves in the thick of the 2016 election season, we thought we'd pitch a question to the God Squad (and to our audience) that seems important:
Why are we so angry?
Sure, anger has long been such a reliable feature of the American political landscape that perhaps you've nearly grown bored of it? But something seems different right now - the fury seems to have escalated to a point where it feels that - far beyond the same-old same-old din - we're actually in danger of losing our moorings. It feels like the ties that bind us are disintegrating in ways that feel unfamiliar and dangerous.
It would be hard to find a better reason to listen to each other. And it seems imperative to ask ourselves how we can cool the hatred.
Facilitating the conversation is Pastor Darrick McGhee. (It was unanimous that he was the right calming presence for this one.)
Faith, Food, Friday is $8 if you register through the Tuesday ahead of each program ($10 after) and free if you’d like to bring your own lunch with you. We offer online payment as a courtesy so you don't have to stop at the door but note that there is an additional fee when paying online.
Grilled chicken breast
Meet the God Squad, the brains behind our series “Faith, Food, Friday: Improbable conversations for people of faith and no faith at all (because talking politics wasn’t hard enough). Whoever you are, whatever your beliefs, bring an open mind, an open heart (and an empty stomach) for a continuing conversation that makes it safe to bring your beliefs to the public square - just as you are. We hope you'll join us as we explore what happens when people of good will who might disagree cross each others' thresholds and break a little bread together.
