UXBRIDGE: Drink some brews and share your views at the upcoming “Faith Conversations Over a Pint” event, at Wixan’s Bridge, in Uxbridge on January 29th.
St. Paul’s Anglican Church holds a monthly event at the restaurant, where people of all faiths and backgrounds can come and discuss faith, in a non-judgmental atmosphere.
Reverend Canon Mark Kingham said, “We gather together to share conversations and reflect on a question I put out there and then it goes wherever it goes. There are no right or wrong answers. All viewpoints are certainly more than welcome.”
The monthly discussions are aimed at creating a meaningful dialogue where people can share as much or as little as they choose.
“It’s not meant to be intimidating in any way. It’s very accessible and people participate as much as they would like to participate,” said Reverend Kingham.
He told The Standard that through the monthly meetings, he hopes people can dig a little deeper within themselves and also make new friends.
The focus of the group is to have deep conversations about spirituality and faith, but they often end up talking about lighter subjects too.
Reverend Kingham said, “Mainly it’s about the conversations that happen. Sometimes we stay on topic. Most times we don’t, we end up talking about a whole bunch of other things.”
He told The Standard, at the upcoming meeting, he plans to ask about where people find hope, given all the negative things we hear going on in the world today.
The event takes place from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., on January 29th, at Wixan’s Bridge, located at 65 Brock Street West, in Uxbridge.
Reverend Kingham said, “Everyone is more than welcome. Come on out. We would love to meet you.”
