The Great Conversation (TGC) continues over breakfast as Dr. Andrew J. Newell shares his thoughts on the topic: The Post-Christian Worldview as a New Religion.
Dr. Newell will be discussing how the post-Christian, cultural worldview has become a new religion, complete with its own high priests and sacred beliefs. Come gain a better understanding of this new religion forming under “The Myth of Progress," and be encouraged to continue to think and live Christianly.
