First Tuesdays: Theology on Tap
Coronas, Cabernet, and Christ – not necessarily in that order - were the main attractions at The Café Marie during The Episcopal Church of the Epiphany’s May gathering of “Theology on Tap Tunica.”
The Theology on Tap Tunica group was formed nearly a year ago and has met at The Café Marie for theological discussions the first Tuesday of each month. Meetings are open to the public and start at 6:30 p.m. Gatherings are organized by Rev. Will Lowry, Priest at The Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in Tunica, and feature guest speakers occasionally. And, there’s alcohol – all kinds.
For its May meeting, Lowry led the discussion and started by sharing a brief overview of the relationship between God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit as explained in John 15. He summed up the lesson by highlighting the importance of agape love expressed through communion and asked the group a challenging question that quickly became the basis of the group’s conversation for the entire evening.
Dance Explosion Saturday
Local nonprofit dance company Brazilian Dance Inc. plans to host its third annual dance explosion Saturday, and, this time, it will be all about praise.
Shamia Thomas, owner of Brazilian Dance Inc., said she is hosting the event to feature more than a dozen praise dance performances at Greater New St. Paul Baptist Church in Tunica. She started Brazilian Dance, Inc. in 2010 to teach youth the art of dance.
