June Series: “The Gospel According to the Avett Brothers”

This June I will be presenting a four-week series on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 P.M. called “The Gospel According to the Avett Brothers” at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Greensboro.

The series will use references from classic literature, contemporary film, Avett Brothers (and other) music, and the Bible to examine spiritual truths about who God is, who we are, what it means to be in relationship with God, and why it all matters in the first place.

Now, I certainly don’t claim to have all of the answers to these questions. Instead, I’m just hoping to open a discussion about them, and I feel like exploring the philosophical, theological, and spiritual dimensions of the Avett Brothers’ music is a wonderful entry point to begin such a discussion.

After the event, the group will move across the street to Fisher’s Bar and Grille and The Corner Slice to enjoy food, drink, and further fellowship together. If you’re local and interested, I’d love for you to come out and join us!

* These will be very casual evenings, so feel free to arrive in street clothes, pool attire, gym attire, etc.

** Kid Care will be provided for children up to age 12.  If you want to take advantage of this service, it would be helpful for the staff if you could email me at austingcarty@gmail.com and give me the number of children you’ll be dropping off. This helps the church know how many child care providers to have on hand. The service will still be available for you if you bring a child unannounced, but if at all possible, the church would really appreciate the advance notice.

    I love the Avett Brothers and I love classic literature and careful theological discussions. I will be watching and taking notes from afar.
