A local FELLOWSHIP HALL where the MEN break BREAD, tap the KEG, and toast their HEROES.

On the second and fourth Thursdays of each month, men gather at The Ladder to engage in a vigorous, non-“lowest-common-denominator” type of ecumenism among the three Great Christian Traditions. We aren’t afraid to put on our theological boxing gloves to spar for a minute, and to take them off for a shared pint the next. If you haven’t seen a Catholic listen to the life story of John Wesley; if you haven’t watched a Protestant learn about Evagrius of Pontus; and if you haven’t seen Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant men sit around a table together and talk theology until midnight . . . then you need to come to the Hall of Men. Doors at The Ladder open at 7 pm, food is served at 7:30, and the Eighth Day Convocation (Hymn, Nicene Creed, Patristic Reading, Scripture and Lord’s Prayer) starts at 8:30, followed by the lecture.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.  And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

—Hebrews 12:1
