Water & Wine 

Nothing says "praise the Lord" like a tall, frosty mug of ice-cold beer with a whiskey chaser and a hot, steaming basket of delicious fried cheese. Okay, maybe that's not the traditional way of Christian worship, but it appears to be the driving philosophy behind Theology on Tap, a program started 25 years ago by the archdiocese of Chicago. Given the extreme popularity of beer, the program quickly spread around the country and evolved into a speakers series for the theologically minded bon vivant. On Sunday, June 4th, at Zinnie's Full Moon Club, Father Tim Sullivan, a past director of the Interfaith Hospitality Network, an outreach program for the homeless, will speak about the meaning of mercy and the importance of social justice. And the June 11th installment looks particularly promising for a good beer-soaked conversation. That's when Gail Streete, an associate professor of religious studies at Rhodes College and author of The Strange Woman: Sex and Power in the Bible, discusses the controversial novel/film The Da Vinci Code. Who knows? Maybe some surviving members of the Knights Templar will show up to buy everybody a round.

Theology on Tap, 7 p.m., Sunday, June 4th, Zinnie's Full Moon Club. Talk is free but donations are welcome.
