    Understanding Jordan Peterson, Part III: Beyond Order

    Understanding Jordan Peterson, Part III: Beyond Order

    In this third talk on Jordan Peterson, we look at his most recent book Beyond Order, the sequel to his best-selling 12 Rules for Life. Through his personal suffering and through his interactions with many people on tour, his thinking is refined and clarified. We also look at his emphasis on maps and stories as sources of knowledge and meaning, and how might a Christian think about his newest contribution.

    Peter, Judas: Is it me? Practical Concerns over Predestination (Clarke Scheibe)

    Peter, Judas: Is it me? Practical Concerns over Predestination (Clarke Scheibe)

    Both Peter and Judas asked of Jesus, "Is it me?" after Jesus had told his disciples that one of them would betray him. This can be a question that can cause hand-wringing even today. Am I saved or am I not? Am I chosen? This talk deals particularly with 'theological fatalism' (or 'hyper-Calvinism') and the concerns that the doctrine of predestination bring up. While the doctrine of predestination often brings dread, the opposite is intended in Scripture. It is a doctrine, when properly understood, gives assurance and hope.

    Floodwaters: The Biblical Journey from Anxiety to Peace (Jez Carr)

    Floodwaters: The Biblical Journey from Anxiety to Peace (Jez Carr)

    There is a deep resonance between our feelings of anxiety and our fear of out-of-control water. We feel ‘overwhelmed’, ‘flooded’. This resonance was shared by the authors of Scripture, who depict floods, storms and towering waves within the emotional landscape of God’s people. In fact, the bible story is saturated with water imagery. We will explore how that offers us company within our struggles, hope within the story of God’s victory over them, and wisdom for how to handle them.

    The Forgotten Thomas Paine: The Father of Unbelief (Dr. Irving Hexham)

    The Forgotten Thomas Paine: The Father of Unbelief (Dr. Irving Hexham)

    Today Thomas Paine is remembered for his books Common Sense (1776) and The American Crisis (1776–1783) which made him the leading propagandist of the American Revolution and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. What is largely forgotten is his devastating attack on Christianity in The Age of Reason (1737-1809) and other writings and his key role in creating what many scholars call "the Victorian crisis of faith." This talk will examine Paine's criticism of Christianity and its influence on writers as diverse as Karl Marx (1818-1883), George Eliot (1819-1880), and Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) as well as Nazism in Germany.

    Being Religious but not Spiritual: Lessons from the life of King Saul (Clarke)

    Being Religious but not Spiritual: Lessons from the life of King Saul (Clarke)

    While it has been popular in the past to call one's self "spiritual but not religious," we also see people who are "religious but not spiritual." This is not just the legalistic person or "a fundamentalist." We can all fall into this category at times in our lives, perhaps looking to this spiritual practice or this tradition to bring us close to God. It is a hope that an external form will guarantee an internal transformation. This talk will look at this topic through the lens of King Saul's life as recorded in the biblical book, 1 Samuel, and draw lessons from his "religious but not spiritual" life.

    The Place of Wisdom: A Look at Job 28 (Clarke Scheibe)

    The Place of Wisdom: A Look at Job 28 (Clarke Scheibe)

    This is a look at Job 28, an unusual chapter. It is a calm reflection on the nature of humanity and wisdom in the midst of the torrent of argument and lament throughout the book of Job. What does this have to say to us about being human? How can humans be so powerful, intelligent, and adventurous, yet they cannot discover the meaning and wisdom of all these things? Is it all sound and fury signifying nothing? The Bible offers us a different answer, a valuable one during these chaotic days.
