Wisdom Conversations Presented by Cornerstone University
Christianity in America: Declining Toward Insignificance or Resurging Toward Revival?
Oct. 5, 2023 | 7 p.m.
Cornerstone University, Christ Chapel
Pew Research Center data suggests that Christianity in America is rapidly declining toward a minority religion within the next five decades. Other data suggests even more alarming trends related to the place of Christianity in the lives of youth, Christian leaders and churchgoers.
Join the conversation on these significant demographic changes and the future of Christianity in the United States at the upcoming Wisdom Conversations on Thursday, Oct. 5. Featured guests include Eric Metaxas, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author.
As a destination for bold, Christ-centered and influential thought leadership, Cornerstone University is committed to fostering vigorous and courteous conversations with national leaders about some of the most important problems and questions of our day to inspire the pursuit and application of wisdom for the flourishing of our lives and communities.
Hosted and moderated by Cornerstone University, Wisdom Conversations is a series of shared conversations addressing urgent issues of our times and increasing global volatility. National guest thought leaders and experts thoughtfully engage for 90 minutes in a public forum over today’s societal and moral challenges, offering various viewpoints and positive potential solutions for the greater good.
Most important is the foundational belief that the Bible is the ultimate source of truth and knowledge, and wisdom only comes as the result of applying its virtues, perfectly exemplified by Jesus Christ. Together, we can create a beautiful community that honors God and influences the world for His purposes.
