Theology on Tap: Purgatory – Can Catholics and Evangelicals Agree?

St. Mark’s Hanrahan Scholar-in-Residence Brett Salkeld will be on hand to discuss his book Can Catholics and Evangelicals Agree about Purgatory and the Last Judgment? (Paulist Press, 2011). Purgatory has been a divisive doctrine in the Churches of the West since the time of the Reformation, in large part because of the role it had come to play in the buying and selling of indulgences that so troubled the conscience of Martin Luther. All the Reformers rejected it as both unscriptural and as derogating fro

m the comprehensive nature of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. But Catholics have maintained the doctrine, highlighting the ancient and constant practice of Christian prayer for the dead and the obvious fact that sanctification is a slow process that is often left incomplete at death. Can these claims be reconciled? Salkeld thinks so! To decide if you agree or disagree, you’ll need to go to the next Theology on Tap. If you’re Catholic, bring an Evangelical friend; if you’re Evangelical, bring a Catholic friend. And let the conversation begin!

THEOLOGY ON TAP TORONTO—-NOVEMBER 26 2012

THEOLOGY ON TAP: Contemporary Christian Music and Consumer Culture

Monday, November 26, 2012 – 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Special guest: Leah Hunter, Toronto based musician and recent graduate of Regis College (M.T.S. ’11).

If consumer culture is present in the newer songs we sing at Church, is this a bad thing? What might it say about us as a worshiping body?

Leah Hunter is a Toronto based musician and recent graduate of Regis College (M.T.S. ’11). She was a chamber musician at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene from 1999-2005 and the director of music at FreeChurch from 2005-2009, as well as the volunteer choir director for the weekly liturgy at Regis College last winter. She currently freelances, plays flute with the 7th Toronto Regiment Royal Canadian Artillery Band, and provides music for the mass at St. John’s Anglican Church West Toronto. She spent the end of the summer touring southern Ontario to promote her first full-length album of original songs titled, Broken Flowers (now available on vinyl and digital download at leahhunter.bandcamp.com).
