Mere Caffeination Fall 2021 Schedule

On most Friday mornings you can find me in Stinger’s Cafe hanging out with any and all students who feel like talking about coffee, C.S. Lewis, worldview stuff, and, most importantly, God. As you may have guessed, Mere Caffeination is inspired by the C.S. Lewis classic Mere Christianity. Join us on Fridays at 8AM for a caffeinated time of prayer, conversation, and Q&A.

This year we are getting a bit more organized. If you want to get the most of our meetings, though this isn’t a requirement, we’re providing a schedule of topics and articles you read each week in preparation for our coffee talk.
