The 2020 Providence Public Lectures will demonstrate the impressive range of expertise among Providence faculty, whose topics will include politics, theology, morality, history, psychiatry, worship, and social construction. Presenting in Winnipeg and Steinbach, Providence professors are excited to bring their scholarship into the public square. Attendees can expect to be intellectually stimulated, perhaps challenged, and to come away with a new appreciation for Christian higher education.
All lectures are free to attend – no registration required.
Lecture Synopsis: Christians revolutionized the ancient world by providing for unwanted and impoverished persons via internal and external approaches. Using their political influence in the Roman Empire, Christians promoted legislation against infanticide in 374 C.E., and laws that allowed subsidies for destitute families in order to avert the abandonment of children. At the same time, the church encouraged struggling parents who had no means to care for their children to leave them by the door of churches, which became the first orphanages. In a world where children and youth face such a bleak future and death has become so cheap, this presentation will explore how Scripture calls humanity to engage and shape public policy from within and without, for the betterment of all.
