Sans smoky air, rowdy bar patrons and loud
music, close to 200 people filled Stonehouse
Pub, 11012 Jasper Ave., to standing room only on Aug. 19.
Beer or other inebriating beverages were not tops on patrons'
order lists. Though most of them had something to drink, what they
really came for was the "theology on tap."
This was the scene at the pub for four consecutive Tuesday nights

to young people at universities and colleges during the summer
