Casual Conversations-St. Pauls Church Put-in-Bay invites everyone to join us for some “casual conversations” on Tuesday afternoons at 2pm. This will be an opportunity to ask those questions you’ve wondered about or join a conversation someone else starts. Our springboard topic for May 6th is “Does God have a Big Toe?” The question comes from the title of a book by Marc Gellman’s book which is a collection of stories using familiar Genesis texts. The second week we will move to “How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?” – a question with an infinite number of answers. Casual conversations is that – casual. There will not be any “homework.” You can drop in any week. This will be an opportunity to meet others on the island and explore our faith together.
