Boston Theology on Tap returns on Tuesday 10 November when our special guest is Fr. Phillip Ellsworth, whose topic will be:
“God vs. God: Is the Old Testament God Really Cranky & Mean and the New Testament God Warm & Fuzzy?”
It’s an age-old question: “Is the God of the OT really the same God of the NT?” When Jesus on the cross takes upon himself the curse of the covenant so that blessing might come to us, is he just being a kinder, gentler version of the God whom those poor souls in the Old Testament were made to suffer?
Fr. Ellsworth is Curate of St Francis Episcopal Church in Potomac, MD, and the former Assoc. Rector of St. Bartholomew’s Church in New York — as well as actual father to the Advent’s own Gabriel Ellsworth! The parish will host Fr. Ellsworth for part of his sabbatical in 2016, and he graciously agreed to join us at Theology on Tap in November.
Join us (and bring a friend!) @ the Rattlesnake on Boylston to give Fr. Ellsworth a huge Theology on Tap welcome on November 10 @ 7p!
