Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
When we hear the word theology, we may think we are going to engage in esoteric reflections about divinity and the afterlife. But theology at its best is not about God or gods, but about life and its meaning and the myths that drive us. Arthur Dewey is professor of theology at Xavier University in Cincinnati. He is a scholar of the historical Jesus and a Fellow of Westar Institute, popularly known as the Jesus Seminar. He says that

Theology is resonant. At its best, it lends rhythm and rhyme to the raw energy of life. It improvises on this world without trying to escape to a heaven somewhere else

We are going to talk about his book, Wisdom Notes: Theological Riffs on Life and Living.

The Ramadan Tent Project is a creation of students in London. It is an open iftar, a breaking of the fast, in which the public is invited. The first ever Ramadan Tent Project in the United States was held last year in Beaverton, Oregon. The students who brought it to Portland will do it again this year. We will hear about this event and we will hear about the heart of Islam from two bright and compassionate university students, Sadaf Assadi and Hanan Alzubaidy.
