Think! South Loop Conference
Why Is God Silent in the face of evil?
Welcome to THINK!
THINK! South Loop is a three-night conversation aimed at fostering conversation and healthy debate among those who might classify themselves as spiritual seekers, skeptics, or no having faith affiliation at all. The conversations provide a safe and informal environment to ponder and explore a variety of questions around the claims of the Christian faith with others who also do not identify with Christianity and are open to learning more. Each night will answer one critical question through lecture, open Q&A, as well as follow up smaller conversations into the evening. Join us for 1 or all 3 nights.
Each conversation is free for all in attendance. Registration is requested.
