About the event
There’s no shortage of hot-button issues facing our culture. Longstanding debates rage about the equality of men and women, the relationship between races, and the origin of the universe. Add to these the more recent questions related to gender identity, same sex ‘marriage’, and LGBTQ rights. Every member of our society is being challenged by these issues. Where do you go to learn how to think through such challenging questions? Many just look to other people, thinking society to be a reliable guide. But is it? Perhaps that our most modern questions are answered with ancient wisdom.
In the first sentence of the first chapter of John Calvin’s magisterial classic, the Institutes of the Christian Religion, Calvin famously writes, “Nearly all the wisdom we possess, that is to say, true and sound wisdom, consists of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves” (1.1.1). Our understanding of who we are is inseparable from our understanding of who God is and how we relate to Him. And it has never been more important for Christians to find our identity in what God says we are. And that identity begins with the doctrine of creation.
