The Thrill of the Chaste author and blogger-RomeChick-pal Dawn Eden will be speaking at Theology on Tap in New Haven, CT on January 24 and would love for anyone within earshot (?) to come (time/place details below). She's asked several Connecticut friends (including moi) to recommend a pregnancy center or other pro-life organization in our neck of the woods. She is donating whatever honorarium (payment) she receives for her ToT talk to a local charity that's helping women who want to choose life for their children.
Wednesday January 24, 2007 ▪ 7:30-8:30
Playwright, 144 Temple Street ▪ New Haven
The event is free but a suggested offering of $5 is asked.
ARRIVE EARLY FOR FREE APPETIZERS!
Theology on Tap is a casual forum where young adults in their 20's and 30's [ahem! AND 40's!], single or married, of all denominations and walks of life, gather in a local bar/restaurant for "straight talk, hard facts, and real answers" on our faith and how it applies to daily life. These get-togethers are held monthly. And there are many nationwide chapters; here are the Connecticut and Iowa ones. You can Google the rest to find your local one.
