TheoloJay on Tap (TJoT) is a meeting place where topics of faith and spirituality are presented and discussed in a casual atmosphere with friends. 

TJoT provides a space for young adults in Creighton's graduate and professional schools, as well as alumni from the last 5 years, to build community by reflecting on topics of faith in the world today and engaging in challenging and enriching conversations.

Think about it this way: learning and talking about faith with friends and a beverage!

"Sport & Spirituality"

with Dr. Max Engel and Dr. Jay Carney

What does Jesus's Paschal Mystery have to do with sports? For Creighton Theology professors Dr. Max Engel & Dr. Jay Carney, the answer is simple: Everything. Athletics provide a venue for experiencing the sacramentality of joy, ritual, and triumph, as well as the pain of injury, suffering, and loss. Whether you are a casual fan or a diehard fanatic, all are invited to come and engage this rich intersection of culture and theology. 

Topic: “Sport & Spirituality”

When: Wednesday, January 26th, from 7:30-9:00pm 

Where: Dena's Place (Located within the Highlander Dining Room - 2112 N 30th St, Suite 201)

Speakers: Dr. Max Engel & Dr. Jay Carney
