pub-talks-tagline-jpgPubTalks are conversations about the intersection of faith and the public square. Click here or view our PubTalks website at for more information, plus a list of resources related to recent PubTalks discussions.

These conversations loosely follow the format of TED talks, offering a short presentation up front and then open time for conversation and Q&A. Come early to hang out, connect, nibble on some munchies and drink some coffee. Stay late to discuss the topic further.

Our Next PubTalk: Challenge and Opportunity Amidst the Current Refugee Crisis - Thinking about and caring for refugees with grace, compassion and wisdom

Our Global Mission Director will be sharing with us about what God would have us do, as Christians, for our refugee and immigrant neighbors. Amidst all the complexities and uncertainties, the opportunity to reach out, to care, and to share the beauty of God's love and grace for the most vulnerable among us is remarkable. But how do we do this not only compassionately but wisely? Join us not only to listen, but to consider, ask, and discuss. 

And if you would like to remain up to date about what's always going on with PubTalks, send us an email so we can make sure to let you know when and where the next thing's happening.
