TheologyOnTap_LogoThanks to the Diocese of Charleston, LVG is able to resume using the Theology on Tap name and logo that is so well-recognized across the country for its speaker series! The Fall 2014 Theology on Tap series will last 4 weeks – meeting Mondays at 6:45pm @ Your Pie (1461 Woodruff Road) – beginning on October 27th. The series theme is based on Lamentations 5:21 – “Restore us to thyself, O LORD, that we may be restored!”

Jesus calls to conversion. It is by faith in the Gospel and by Baptism that one renounces evil and gains salvation – the forgiveness of all sins and the gift of new life. Christ’s call to conversion continues to resound in the lives of Christians. The human heart is heavy and hardened – God must give man a new heart. Conversion is first of all a work of the grace of God who makes our hearts return to him: “Restore us to thyself, O LORD, that we may be restored!” God gives us the strength to begin anew. The human heart is converted by looking upon him whom our sins have pierced. Conversion is accomplished in daily life by gestures of reconciliation…revision of life, examination of conscience, spiritual direction, acceptance of suffering, and endurance of persecution for the sake of righteousness. Taking up one’s cross each day and following Jesus is the surest way of penance. Every sincere act of worship or devotion revives the spirit of conversion. (CCC 1427, 1428, 1432, 1435)
