So a priest, a minister and a rabbi walk into a bar….
It’s the start of many jokes and for the last three years has also been the title of our informal symposium on beer and faith. We had every intention of bringing it back to Philly Beer Week this year but then we found out that our compatriot and the minister in the equation, Bryan Berghoef, will be away on a pilgrimage to Iona.
Once Rabbi Eli Freedman and I got done calling him names behind his back, we set our minds to trying to find another person to take his place. For a while it looked like we had someone lined up but unfortunately they will be away for Beer Week.
And so we turn to you, our friends and kindred spirits. We’d love for one of you to join us this year at Fergie’s Pub as we wax poetic about beer, God and faith and the ways in which they all tie together.
Of course we have some standards.
To make sure we don’t wind up like the Mystery Men, here is what we are looking for.
The ideal candidate will:
#1 Be a person of faith
#2 Have extensive knowledge about their faith and its history
#3 Be comfortable talking to a crowd and taking questions
#4 Have a sense of humor
#5 Live in the Philly Metro area
#6 Be free on the afternoon of Sunday, June 5th
#7 Love beer (duh)
In order to broaden our perspectives special consideration will be shown to those outside the Judeo-Christian tradition and to women.
