Symposium on the Intermediate State
Hinkson Hall, Deerfield IL
TIU

The resurrection of the body is one of the central doctrinal claims of the Christian faith. It is also the source of Christian hope when faced with the death of a loved one. But what happens between now and then? When a child asks their parent where a departed loved one is “now,” how should Christians respond? Do the souls of those who have died in faith go to be with the Lord now, awaiting to be reunited with their resurrected bodies? Or are traditional Christian beliefs in an immaterial soul that is separable from the body misplaced—an unscriptural incursion of Platonic metaphysics that has misshaped our expectations of the afterlife?

In fact, the number of outbreaks has more than tripled in the last forty years. Without coordinated public health action, experts predict that the next pandemic—one with the potential to take millions of lives and cost the global economy billions of dollars—is not a matter of “if, but when”. How can we strengthen our health systems, prepare our global cities, and educate our communities to best prevent it?
