Fundamental to Scriptural teaching on creation and to doctrine is the very idea of nature and the natural: we are placed in the midst of a fruitful world that is to be tended and imitated; we are to join in its joyful praise of our Lord. Yet Scripture also teaches us about artifacts and manufacture of all kinds: city walls and streets, houses and the goods in them, the design and fashioning of every decorative and devout element of the Temple, the heavenly Jerusalem, a City of God. How should Christians attentive to these lessons think about technology? We are surrounded by it; we are fascinated by it; it controls much of our lives. Has this supplanted nature in Christian lives; should it? In this lecture, Katherine Sonderegger will reflect upon how a Christian shaped by the Doctrine of Creation should approach such complex and every-day matters.
Free luncheon and discussion with D. Stephen Long and Katherine Sonderegger following the lecture, in partnership with the Center for Transformational Churches.
