Theology at the Bottleworks (TATB) brings people together from all views and perspectives, religious and irreligious, to discuss the important topics of our times. Our goals are to foster respect, learn from each other and make our city a better place, one animated but peaceful conversation at a time. Join us this month as we discuss Media in America & The Pursuit of Truth.
The term "fake news" has become a frequently cited part of the American lexicon. Additionally, the rise of new forms of media such as 24-hour cable news and social media channels has fundamentally changed the way many of us learn about and make sense of the world around us. Join us this April as we discuss our rapidly changing relationship with the media. What goals ought we to pursue as we choose the media sources we follow? Is it possible for the media to report the objective truth, and if so how? What are the legal, ethical or moral responsibilities of news stations, tech giants, and every-day media consumers in producing, curating, and seeking out content that contributes to human flourishing? What are our responsibilities in choosing and relying upon media sources? It’s a big topic, so grab a brew, share your view and lend an ear to others’.
Masks for attendees are required and seating is limited by local and federal guidelines. Bring your own drinks (no glass) and lawn chair, and we’ll provide a few bottles of Schlafly fine ales. The fireplace will be blazing and public restrooms are available. Plentiful parking is available immediately adjacent to the South Shelter on Shaw Park Drive in Clayton.
