In case you missed attending and/or watching SymposiaChristi’s Human Dignity, Slavery, and Sex Trafficking (Purdue), the Livestream video is available. I read on the Facebook Wall that permanent links will be posted this week. But as you may have more time this afternoon/evening, consider this an opportunity for a head start.
All of the sessions which I had opportunity to see were powerful, challenging, educational, and well moderated.
- Nathan Harden: “Sex and God at College” (Includes Q & A)
- Crissy Moran: “Ex-Porn Star Tells All” (Interview)
- Dr. John Hare v. Dr. Michael Ruse: “What Would Jesus Do? What Would Darwin Do? A Dialogue Concerning Radical Social Injustice” (Presentations & Conversation between Christian and Atheist Philosophers) — video embedded below.
I highly recommend these pieces for personal edification, conversation, and small group discussion. When time permits, I will watch the opening evening session more fully (Note: There are some issues with sound in the opening minutes).
Note: A big “Thank-you” to Joe Whitchurch, InterVarsity Graduate and Faculty Ministries at Purdue for keeping me up-to-date on this excellent example of Engaging the University and the larger culture. To God be the glory!
Update: 2/2/2014 (3:27 pm): Minor edits and addition of poster.
