Pre-Forum Seminar

Women's Pre-Forum Seminar: Preparing Our Hearts and Minds
with Jelena Sivulka

We live terribly busy lives. Coming to the Forum can be a great break from many of our everyday responsibilities, but we can be surprised to find ourselves even busier than we are at home. Many of us arrive exhausted, overworked, and worried about the things we have left undone. How do we avoid neglecting the opportunities to learn what God wants to teach us? Where can we find refreshment for our souls? How can we build relationships with other women at the Forum to mutually encourage and support each other? All women are invited to arrive early for this highly interactive Pre-Forum Seminar to get to know one another, quiet our hearts and minds, discuss common challenges, and pray in order to prepare for what God has planned for us at the Forum and beyond.




Identifying and Responding to Naturalism in Popular Culture: The Big Bang Theory as a Case Study

Many of the background beliefs that our secular culture presses on us about Christianity make it seem implausible. Such assumptions “are not presented to us explicitly by argument, [but] absorbed through the stories and themes of entertainment and social media” (Tim Keller). Therefore, a key task for contemporary Christian apologists is to uncover and challenge secular premises, values, and beliefs in popular culture. In this session, we discuss how to identify and respond to naturalism in popular culture with the highly popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory as a case study.
