Common Grounds

Our culture is becoming increasingly polarized as we retreat into our online echo chambers. To do something about this, we’re inviting skeptics, seekers, and believers of all stripes to share in an informal, open-ended discussion with grad students from across CU Boulder. We call this:

Common Grounds: Coffee & Theology.

Our Fall/Winter 2017-18 theme is: Common Complaints about Church.


October 21st, 2017: God is mean?! On the problem of evil, violence in sacred texts, Hell, and other religions (at UMC 404)

December 2nd, 2017: I’m too busy?! How to flourish in grad school and have time for other stuff (at UMC 425)

January 20, 2018: Those Christians can’t even agree amongst themselves?! (at UMC 404)

February 24, 2018: The church wants my money?! On faith in a consumerist society (at UMC 425)

Time: Saturdays, 10am-12pm

Cost: Free. Coffee and snacks provided.

Hope to see you there!
