For our first Pub Church of a new season, we’ll host an evening featuring a couple of our must trusted friends and partners: Front Porch thinker-in-residence, Pittman McGehee, Sr., and Dave Madden, local multi-instrumentalist and musical genius. Join us as Pittman opens our evening with a story about a moment where he glimpsed the ineffable through a singular personal experience. Afterwards, we’ll all reflect together, via the roving mic, on how these kinds of hard-to-describe instances help shape our lives in significant ways.

J. Pittman McGehee, D.D. is an Episcopal priest and Jungian analyst in private practice in Austin, Texas. He is widely known as a lecturer and educator in the field of psychology and religion, as well as a published poet and essayist. He is the author of The Invisible Church: Finding Spirituality Where You Are (2008)Raising Lazarus: The Science of Healing the Soul (2009), Words Made Flesh, and The Paradox of Love, now available for sale through The Jung Center of Houston’s Bookstore.

Dave Madden was voted Best Music Arranger at the 2013 AMP Austin Music Industry Awards and Top 10 Best Keyboardists as voted by the Chronicle’s 2014 Music Poll. An incredible talent with a degree from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, Dave’s peers consider him a “musician’s musician.” He has been hired to perform with a diverse range of world-class artists, from reggae-pop favorite Michael Franti to legendary rock icon Steve Miller. Madden won Best Austin Record of 2010 with his ambitious pop-rock release, Open-Eyed & Broken Wide, an unprecedented double-album 20-page art-book and high-res audio download. As the Statesman put it: “Like summer, it would be nice if Madden’s choruses lasted forever.

Pub Church stats at 5:30 PM in the backroom of Scholz Garten. The second half of the conversation is opened up to the congregation as a roving microphone gives voice to all who wish to comment, question, and share their perspective. At the end of the discussion, a radically-open Communion service is always offered.
