Public Theology

Lively Faith in Casual Conversation

Public Theology at Celtic Crossing. On the first and third Thursdays of June, July, and August, we’ll gather in the backroom of a local establishment starting at 5 p.m. The conversation will continue for an hour or so. No reservations or signing up needed, just show up! For more details, contact Fr. Jesse Abell at or 901-252-6330.

June 2: Join Fr. Jesse Abell and Dr. Karen Clark and others for an informal conversation about "Faith and Psychology" in a laid-back, casual environment. 

June 16: Join Fr. Ollie Rencher and others to reflect on "Faith Amidst Violence." It seems like violence is everywhere nowadays. Day after day we hear about war, abuse, mass shootings, gang activity, altercations, and domestic disputes and countless other forms. The conversation will include how we, as people of faith, can persevere in the midst of all this and how our faith can inform our response.
