The Gospel Over Lunch

Members of six local churches work together during the school year to offer a Christian perspective on some of life's big questions to people working or studying in and around two high-pressure environments, Georgetown Law School and the U.S. Capitol. Their presentations, called Lunchtime Talks, occur over the course of several weeks during the fall and spring semesters, and discuss difficult questions from a Christian perspective. All are welcome to join, no matter your religious affiliation. Q&A sessions allow attendees the chance to discuss the presentation, but active participation is not required.
