MSSP Oratory Youth is pleased to invite you to the sixth session of Bible and Beer which shall delve into another discourse on the personal value of money. Join us for an evening of thought-provoking discussion where we’ll navigate the intricacies of financial integrity, ethics, and societal pressures.
The session will address pertinent issues such as tax evasion and money misconduct. We’ll explore the paradox of consumerism, examining the impact of social pressures from influencers and our relentless pursuit of material possessions.
The anomaly of financial decisions will be laid bare – questioning the sustainability and joy derived from extravagant spending on travel, big brands, cars, and lavish weddings. Does money truly buy happiness?
Join us for an evening of enlightenment, engaging dialogue, and a sip of your favourite beer at Bible and Beer – where spirituality meets the contemporary challenges of life. Don’t miss this opportunity to discuss more meaningfulness and purpose-driven lifestyle!
The event is scheduled for Wednesday 28th February 2024 and will take place at Vecchia Napoli, Salini, with the opening time being 7:30 pm. To cover the costs of this event we are kindly asking for a €11.50 donation that would include food and drink. This event is open to youths 18 and over. Alcohol will be served.
We look forward to having you with us for an insightful and fruitful dialogue that promises to leave a lasting impact on all those who attend!
We live in a world where many have their own opinion, but we rarely give each other the chance to develop it in a healthy way. Being able to listen and discuss particular topics with other youths can help widen your perspective as you become aware of a reality you might have not yet considered.
Why bother listening to a talk? Why not instead simply email the text to every potential member of the audience? Bible&Beer have created new connections amongst participants and key speakers, and spread curiosity, understanding, empathy and excitement through words. It gave words the life they deserve.
Bible and Beer … Personally, I think it’s a wonderful initiative to have a conversation and have your voice heard in a setting that is safe but most importantly, judgment-free. I believe that this concept has the potential to develop to contribute to the much-needed social change in today’s world.
It was a very different and enriching experience – I believe that it is very necessary for the Church in Malta to create such spaces of dialogue and encounter where different ideas, thoughts and reflections can challenge and give life to our Christian faith in the 21st century.
Despite the fact that I have a bigger affinity with beer than with the Bible these events intrigued me from the start.
Having a safe space to discuss current hot topics is rare nowadays and this event has provided just that, with the extra benefit of knowledgable and engaging speakers to keep the conversation flowing.
A true experience of reciprocal hearing done in great humility. Bible & Beer is a true experience of fraternal dialogue, where hot topics were discussed, taboo’s abandoned and we could all share our thoughts, listen to expected but above all receive the gift of one another as we are, with our own stories, perspectives and understandings.
It is a very enjoyable experience which always leaves you wandering why there isn’t more like it.
The energy I felt and the genuine philosophical enthusiasm of so many young people was exhilarating. It was a breath of fresh air to share a conversation with people who are sincerely ambitious to make the world around them a better place. That kind of hopefulness in the good of this world has become very rare nowadays.
