The Front Porch says
At this Parable gathering, The Front Porch will welcome back NPR correspondent John Burnett for another of his signature Parable interviews/conversations. This time, we’ll be chatting with The University of Texas at Austin Distinguished Teaching Professor of History and Religious Studies, Howard Miller. At this Palm Sunday event that just happens to catch the tail end of the SXSW vibe, John and Howard will reflect on pop culture and where it intersects with religion at this Parable gathering.

Local singer-songwriter and folk/americana aficionado, Andy Barham, will offer our musical program for the evening.

At Parable, we invite voices of all beliefs and cultures to engage in an intentional conversation. The gathering includes no top-down lecturing about theology or absolutes– only discourse, music, food, drink, and dialogue. At the end of the gathering, a radically open Communion service is offered to all, regardless of code or creed. All donations received at Parable directly benefit our musician that evening.

People coming to Parable include lapsed church goers, regular church goers, and those who don’t identify with church. Find us in the backroom at Scholz’s, order your food and brew from our barkeep, and enjoy our local musician’s meanderings as you take your seat at a table. Then, get ready to join the conversation.
