2023 Speakers:

Ann Sorenson, Professor of Film
Scriptwriting Rules and Living a Better Story
Everybody loves a great film, and everybody wants to live a great life. By understanding screenwriting principles of character archetypes and narrative structure and then applying these principles to living, we can live better stories.

Brad Sickler, Professor of Philosophy
The Science of Bias and the Problem of Evil
Recent science supports the biblical claim that belief in God is cognitively natural. Studies also show, however, that biases against outsiders are equally natural. Can we assume God gave us the inclination to believe in Him without also making Him the author of the evils that come from our natural in-group biases?

Brad Ruiter, Assistant Professor of Kinesiology & Sports Management
Sports as a Witness, Not an Identity

Pursuing a career in the high profile world of sports is something many aspire to do, but at what cost? As a Christian working in sports, the challenge to balance who you are with what you do is very real. Keeping a daily focus on Christ is essential.
