|ECCLESIASTES AND THE MEANINGFUL LIFE
|Four thousand years ago, a middle-eastern philosopher, inspired by the Holy Spirit, declared that all life under the sun was meaningless. What could he have possibly meant? And is there anything we can learn from this philosopher for our current culture where young and old are endlessly and hopelessly seeking lives of purpose and meaning? Join us as we find transcendent and lasting meaning in the only place where it can be found.

|ON RE-ENCHANTING THE HEAVENS
|For most of us in our contemporary culture, when we think of the night sky, we picture it as a place of infinite darkness and silence. We picture our own place in the universe as a speck within that infinite darkness. But that’s not always been the case. Christians in the past have seen themselves in the center of the universe, surrounded by celestial light and music. Is it possible to re-enchant the heavens and hear the music once again? Join us to find out.

|MY LIFE WITH DRAGONS: FANTASY FICTION AND SHARING THE GOSPEL
|During the 20th century, fantasy fiction developed as a means of philosophically describing the world. Two schools of fantasy emerged with two very different views of the world. Writers like Tolkien and Lewis gave us worlds of hope, where the forces of good win. Writers like George R. R. Martin (author of “Game of Thrones”) give us a vision of a world of hopelessness, where the forces of evil win. Join us as we find the apologetic value in talking about these stories so that we can talk to our friends and communities about THE true story of hope.
