The Sacredness of Human Life
with Dr. David P. Gushee
APRIL 5, 2014 | 9 A.M. - 1 P.M.
If you have been wrestling with how to respond to some of the top issues of our time like abortion and reproductive rights, human sexuality, environmentalism or modern warfare, we invite you to join us for our next Center for City Renewal gathering. Dr. David P. Gushee is one of the preeminent Christian ethicists in the country and we're delighted to have him help us understand what it means to believe in the sacredness of human life and to equip us to very practically engage with others on these controversial topics.
