Why cosmologists can't stop talking about God
Wheaton College Meyer Science Center, Wheaton IL
Wheaton College

Open a book on cosmology and almost invariably the “God question” is raised. It seems that there is something about the universe that makes us ask questions beyond just the physical realm, that dip into the transcendent. God keeps showing up, even if we seemingly don’t really need him. What is going on and how can we make sense of this?

From Jesus to Adam: Working Backwards on a Theological Problem
Hinkson Hall, Deerfield IL
TIU

Most discussions and debate on Adam focus on issues tied to Genesis, but does the relationship to Jesus help us assess some of the issues raised about Adam? Our study will work backwards by asking how Jesus and the NT treat the issue of Adam. What does that mean for what we say about how Genesis presents the issues tied to genre and symbolism? In particular how Jesus and Paul handle the figures of Adam and Eve will receive attention. Then we will consider the implications of the results of our examination.

The Power of Place: Addressing Urban Inequity Through Innovation and Design
Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Chicago IL
Chicago Council on Global Affairs

As people and wealth are increasingly concentrated in city centers, resources have been invested into projects that often exclude low-income communities. Transformative placemaking frames urban regeneration as an equity issue and calls upon city leaders and innovators to address equal access to public spaces and invest in communities with less social and economic capital. How can innovative development expand work and educational opportunities for all – rather than expand the urban equity gap? How can city governments and the private development sector re-define the parameters of urban development?
