The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” - Alan W. Watts

The nature of dance is ephemeral; it disappears the moment after performance. Until the advent of film, dance was rarely captured except through human memory. Ethington Dance Ensemble members will perform the work of faculty and guest choreographers, exploring the tension created by change both in our individual lives and as communities.

GCU Welcomes Dr. Peter Williams

January 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A Look at the Manuscript Evidence

The College of Theology is pleased to feature special guest speaker and globally renowned Bible research scholar Peter Williams, PhD. Dr. Williams chairs the International Greek New Testament Project, which is currently producing the world’s most comprehensive information on the manuscripts of John’s gospel. He is also a member of the Translation Oversight Committee of the English Standard Version Bible.

The amount of manuscript evidence for the Bible far surpasses that of any other ancient set of books. Dr. Williams will discuss how reliable historical information could be passed on through manuscript copies over vast periods of time. Bible manuscripts can be shown to contain historical information, which can be trusted at least as much as the ancient writings discovered by archaeologists.

About Dr. Williams

Dr. Williams is the CEO and warden of Tyndale House Cambridge and a lecturer in Hebrew language at the University of Cambridge. He earned his MA, MPhil and PhD at Cambridge, studying ancient languages related to the Bible. Prior to leading Tyndale House, Dr. Williams was a senior lecturer in New Testament at the University of Aberdeen. He has spoken at churches, universities, seminaries, schools and conferences across the world on subjects including Bible translation, apologetics and how to understand the scriptures.

Space is limited. Please RSVP to guarantee your seat.

A Conversation about Immigration and the Church

One of the most pressing social justice issues in our city, state and country is immigration reform. Recently, politicians were elected or ousted based on their views for or against immigration, and yet the evangelical church has been relatively silent with regard to what the Bible has to say about the debate. Come and listen to pastors and professors have an open conversation about immigration from biblical and theological perspectives.

This monthly ministry forum event will be held in the CCOB Lecture Hall.

"Love is your master, for he masters you: And he that is so yoked by a fool, Methinks, should not be chronicled for wise."

This Shakespearean comedy finds two young friends, Valentine and Proteus, making their way from Verona to Milan. Valentine's father is sending him to take a position in the Duke of Milan's court, and Proteus accompanies him reluctantly, not wanting to leave his beloved Julia. While in Milan, Valentine falls for the Duke's daughter. From here, things get considerably more complicated as the bosom buddies find themselves torn between the bonds of friendship and romance. This production is considered the "granddaddy" of modern buddy comedies.

A Conversation about Identity, Sexuality, Gender and the Church

Our identity matters, and knowing or not knowing who we are carries consequences. Consider hot-button topics like sexuality and gender in today’s pluralist society. Many in our culture promote progressive gender and sexuality attitudes. Is this all good, or has something gone wrong? Since not all Christians or denominations are entirely united on this issue, does it really matter? What about the Bible? Do Scripture and theology shed light on the subject; and if so, how might God’s Word illuminate this identity crisis of our time? Join us as we talk about it during February’s Monthly Ministry Forum.

This monthly ministry forum event will be held in the CCOB Lecture Hall.
