Dr. Jerry Root, our plenary speaker, will be offering six lectures over the course of the conference on the theme of “Communicating the Gospel: C.S. Lewis Style.”


2) Waging Peace: How America Can Avoid War
Avoiding war, while securing nation’s vast global interests, is a perennial challenge for any United States president. But throughout history forward-looking statesmen like FDR, Reagan, Rabin, and Walesa – leaders who anticipated change and were willing to build alliances and engage with adversaries – were able to promote peace under testing circumstances. What would such a strategy of preventative engagement look like for the United States today?
5:15pm, Chicago Council


3) The NFL and Brain Injuries with Tregg Duerson and Stephanie Kifowit
Join us for a fascinating talk on the new efforts to protect student athletes in Illinois. Tregg Duerson, a mental health advocate and son of 1985 Bears Super Bowl great Dave Duer-son, will co-lead the discussion. Dave Duerson’s tragic suicide has sparked awareness of the links between concussions and brain damage in football players. The Dave Duerson Act to Prevent CTE is a proposed law that would ban organized tackle football for Illinois children 12 years old and under.
