Table Talks


TABLE TALKS are about real conversation shared in community about contemporary human issues that affect our everyday lives. Expect a blend of short readings, thoughtful conversation, delightful community, and tasty desserts in homes around Long Beach.

Upcoming Table Talks

Loneliness, Longing, and Friendship

“It is not good that the man should be alone,” God says of Adam in Eden (Gen 2:8). Loneliness is the first thing about creation that God declares not to be good. Perhaps the most dreadful human experience, loneliness may also be a gift –– insofar as it creates in us longing for something outside ourselves, or better, longing for someone –– a desire for friendship, both human and divine. Expect a blend of thoughtful conversation about these issues, based on short readings, with delightful community, over tasty desserts in homes around Long Beach.

Hosted by Wil Rogan, Rick and Sue Beeney.

| 10/11, 10/18, 10/25 | 7-9PM | RSVP here.
