MADISON -- The next Theology on Tap for young adults will be Thursday, March 29, at 7 p.m. at The Brink Lounge. John and Sarah Ramthun will lead the discussion on “What Must I Do?: Living the Works of Mercy.”

As a young adult, the question “What must I do?” burdens our heart and leaves us restless until we have found an answer that meets all the hopes, dreams, and desires of our heart. When a young scholar of the law asked Jesus this very question, Jesus’ response turned his world upside down.

What relevance does this ancient story have for someone living in Madison during Lent in 2012? John and Sarah will share how the parable of the Good Samaritan has radically transformed how they live the Works of Mercy.

Theology on Tap is a monthly event where people in their 20s and 30s are invited to enjoy free beer and engaging talks by some of the leading thinkers, speakers, educators, innovators, and activists in the nation as they share their insights on various contemporary issues facing young adults today.
