Theology on Tap: Breaking Open Christmas Carols
Thursday, Dec 8 from 4:30-6pm
Tack Room in Lincoln
Grab a beverage and join Kit for an Advent happy hour exploring theology by way of some of our favorite Christmas carols. We’ll explicate beloved lyrics and talk a bit about the theological claims and narratives at work: from summoning Emmanuel (“God with us”) to “Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-ria in excelsis Deo.” We’ll also talk about the spiritual power of collective singing, the balance of poetic tradition and inclusive language, and the paradox of belting out truth claims one may or may not “believe.” Several small group discussions may be encouraged depending on the size of the group, and it’s entirely possible we may break into song!
