Faith in the City in Neighbors Go

Neighbors Go features Faith in the City pub ministry in Friday's edition of the paperI was really honored and excited to share a bit about the pub ministry and the vision behind it with Lindsey Bever from Neighbors Go recently. The article has been on the net for a bit, but it finally got printed in Friday’s edition with yours truly on the cover. I hope it perks some interest in our neighborhood at what we are doing and what we are about – a safe space to bring the tough questions of our lives and our faith. Here’s a bit from the article:

“We talk about really tough questions about faith and about culture and about our world,” he said. “I’m trying to have space where we can be critical of religion and ‘the church.’”

East Dallas Christian Church still has traditional Sunday services for its congregation, but this type of non-intimidating atmosphere, Hill said, allows people on all levels of faith to converse and question without being told to conform from their own religious traditions.

Last year, Bob Hearne, a longtime member of East Dallas Christian Church, helped Hill put together the weekly gatherings.

“I said, ‘Man, if you told me a year ago that I’d have… congregation members in a bar, I would have told you you were crazy,’ ” Hearne said.

Where is Faith in the City tonight?

Faith in the City is a cool pub ministry in East Dallas!

Faith in the City, our Tuesday weekly pub ministry, has been changing locations, exploring what our great neighborhood has to offer. East Dallas has a ton of tasty places – pizza joints, burger spots, barbecue, tacos, southern cuisine, and more. But I know that can all be confusing if you are coming for your first time or trying to find us after being too busy to make it for a couple of weeks. So here’s the good news – we’ll always be posting our monthly calendar up on faithinthecity.com, so you will always know where we are.

Tonight, we’ll be on Greenville at the Bottle Shop. Bob has been raving about this place near his home for a while. It looks like we can order some takeout pizza from Greenville Pizza Company while we are there, which is awesome.

And just to be clear, since I get this questions a lot too – who can come to Faith in the City? Is it just for young adults? Everyone – it’s for everyone! Yes, we are predominantly made up of young adults, and the kind of group we are serves young working professionals well. But anyone of any age is welcome to join the conversation!

If you want to discuss theology, philosophy, life, work, and culture with a bunch of cool, respectful, and humorous people, come join us.

See you tonight!
