What do you get when you cram 15 people into the corner of a pub near the front door all discussing the potential of an apocalypse?
You get the waitress making room in the dining room for the group.
That's what happened tonight. It was a full house of pub theologians and the topic was apocalyptic pronouncements and our opinion of them. It was a predominantly Christian group, which is often not the case in our Pub Theology gatherings. The topic went from religious pronouncements of apocalypse, to scientific pronouncements (Global Warming), to discussions on what makes apocalyptic declarations a necessary element of human desire, to philosophical considerations on the nature of time (always a fun one for me).
It was rowdy, it was fun, it included a brew or two, and it was church like it was meant to be.
