It's tough to find a name for an episode about beer that doesn't offend or violate intellectual property! For the third year in a row we are LIVE at the Diocese of Pennsylvania clergy conference in Cape May, NJ. The Rev. Kirk Berlenbach, Canon for Growth and Support of the Diocese of Pennsylvania, joins the show to discuss beer ministry - do's and don't, what the canons and law allows, safety, policies, and more. We also sample some local south New Jersey craft beer from Cape May Brewery and Ludlam Island Brewery.
The Rev. Patricia (Tricia) Lyons is the Evangelism and Community Engagement in the Episcopal Diocese of Washington DC, administrator of the Episcopal Evangelist network on Facebook, and author of Teaching Faith with Harry Potter: A Guidebook for Parents and Educators for Multigenerational Faith Formation. Tricia has also served on the Presiding Bishop’s team that helped construct The Way of Love campaign.
Dr. Jeremy Bonner is an Honorary Fellow in the Department of Theology and Religion at Durham University and contributor to the book, "Growth and Decline in the Anglican Communion: 1980 to the Present".
