1. CASE Discussion Group: Next Thursday (30th April)

Please join us for our first discussion group of 2009. At CASE we are hoping to provide an environment for corporate learning by running an informal discussion group after the publication of each issue of Case magazine. We are looking forward to robust and stimulating discussion based on the articles in Case 18: City Life. How is the increasing urbansiation of the world’s population impacting relationships, quality of life, personal aspirations etc.? What do you consider to be the challenges and opportunities for Christian apologetics in cities? If such issues are of interest to you we hope to see you next Thursday.

The details are:

Date: Thursday 30th April

Time: 6pm for 6.30pm - 7.30pm

Location: New College Village (215A Anzac Pde, Kensington)

RSVP: to 9381 1999 by Wednesday 29th (there’s no cost involved but we need to know that you’re coming).

Note: In conjunction with our discussion group, we will be opening an on-line discussion around the topic of ‘city life’ next Monday (see point 3 below).

2. Other Events

  • Manufacturing Humans: The Borderlands between Human and Divine Control (ISCAST-CASE lecture): Friday May 29 at 7.30 pm at New College.

3. CASE on-line forums

Continuing the theme of corporate learning (and discussion) we hope that the CASE forum will be a useful platform for vibrant communication around topics in the field of Christian apologetics. We will be opening a forum on the topic of ‘city life’ next Monday.
