COVID-19 Global Church Hackathon FaithTech

We find ourselves at a key moment in history. A global pandemic. Social isolation. Self-quarantine. People who met to worship Jesus together, now unable to do so. Yet we know that the global church is a people, not a series of buildings. As people we will look back on this moment – so let’s choose to leave a legacy that outlasts the current crisis. Let’s build something together that helps the Local Church do what she does best: bringing Faith, Hope and Love to the world around us.

Between March 28th and April 4th, we will be hosting an online Hackathon, unrestricted by geography and location. We will build technological solutions to the problems local churches across the world are now facing. And you can be a part of it. Sign up to join a virtual team. Or link up with some friends and form a team. Create a legacy. Sign up below to join this international community with one aim – leveraging tech to glorify Jesus in the midst of great need.

Are We Slaves to Our Genes?
Trinity International University, Deerfield IL
Trinity International University

This lecture will discuss how human genetic variation relates to behavioral variation, sometimes leading to the idea that our lives represent a competition between genetic and environmental influences in which the genes invariably win. However, contemporary developmental biology points to a more integrated view of human personhood. This brings the science into a natural conversation with theology via the ancient idea of humankind made in the image of God. This powerful framework for understanding human identity guarantees the value of each individual irrespective of their genetic endowment and highlights the moral responsibilities placed upon humankind, involving genuine choice. Far from being slaves to our genes, it is our human DNA that contributes so powerfully to the human development that leads to genuine free will.

Antimatter – Dr. Gerald Gabrielse, Northwestern University
Fermilab, Batavia IL
FERMILAB

Professor Gabrielse’s group probes the predictions, symmetries and proposed extensions to the standard model with exquisite sensitivity, using small-scale apparatus and methods that derive sensitivity from precision rather than energy. His electron and positron magnetic moment measurements with a single trapped particle (the most accurate measurments of propertes of elementary particles) test the standard model’s most precise prediction.

From Islam to Oil: Inside Saudi Arabia’s Influence
Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Chicago IL
Chicago Council

A regional powerhouse, Saudi Arabia’s significance in the Middle East is undeniable. Last September, however, Riyadh’s vulnerabilities were laid bare when an attack on Saudi Aramco by cruise missiles and drones, later attributed to Iran, was left unpunished by the Kingdom’s supposed allies. Join journalist Krithika Varagur at the Council on April 28 for a revealing look at the rise of Saudi regional and global influence, from its propagation of an ultraconservative strand of Islam and its military involvement in neighboring Yemen, to its domination of the global oil markets.
