Blind Date with a Book

Join us for our annual Blind Date with a Book event! All you have to do is check out a wrapped book, read it and let us know whether or not you liked it. For each book, you will be given a “Rate your Date” ballot. Each ballot filled out will be entered into draws throughout the month of February for free books.

Don’t judge a book by its cover!

Providence Public Lecture Series 2020
Mar 3 @ 19:00 – 20:30

When Divinity Kisses Humanity: Can Scripture Inform or Shape Public Policy?

Presentation: Sunday Akin Olukoju (PhD, Walden University) is the co-pastor of Immanuel Fellowship in Winnipeg. He has taught at Athabasca University, published several articles in the American Society of Public Administration, and written a monthly column in the Diversity Times magazine. His book The Finest Wine has been adapted into a movie currently running via satellite in South Sudan.

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.
