THEOLOGY AT THE BOTTLEWORKS #166: The Importance of NOT Being Earnest

  • Schlafly Bottleworks 7260 Southwest Ave St. Louis United States (map)

THEOLOGY AT THE BOTTLEWORKS is a monthly public discussion that takes up the most important issues of our times among an amazing diversity of interesting people. Join the conversation this month as we discuss (with all due respect to Oscar Wilde) “The Importance of NOT Being Earnest”.  Our culture seems full of people in frequent outrage. Why is outrage so pervasive? Is outrage, passion or vehemence the best way to communicate, dialogue and persuade? When might anger and outrage be a duty; and when is it wrong? Why is the art of civil disagreement dying and polarization increasing? Are we losing the ability to see what matters much and what doesn’t? What issues to you are worth passion, outrage or other high emotion – and which are not? Come have a brew, share your view, and lend an ear to others'.
