Don’t Forget About the Humanitas Forum!

The Humanitas Forum on Christianity and Culture

2010 Fall Lectures

Cookeville, Tennessee

September 17, 2010 (Friday) — Michael Poore, Executive Director, The Humanitas Project

Christian Posture in a Secular Age: Fitting In? Pulling Out? Hunkering Down? Standing Up?

What does it mean to follow Jesus in a secular age?

The present era has also been described as post-Christian—a time when Christianity has ceased to exert any significant influence on the broader culture.  Remarkably, at the same time, 85% of Americans claim to be Christian.

Christianity has not disappeared.  Rather, it has gone private. One Christian leader has observed that Christianity has become “socially irrelevant even though it is often privately engaging.”  For those of us committed to the historic truths and practices of the Church, this situation should be a matter of great concern. It should be of special concern since the situation represents a Christian retreat from culture as well as the assults of an aggressive secularism.

The Humanitas Forum on Christianity and Culture is dedicated to wrestling with some of the many issues facing Christians who would be “salt and light” in our secular age.  Please plan to join us!

For your convenience, here is the schedule for the fall.  A summary of each talk can be found at www.humanitas.org/forum/cookeville .
