Date: April 7, 2014. 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon (followed by lunch; no charge).

Eberstadt_webLocation: George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Paul Powell Chapel, Baylor University

Opening Address: “Is Secularization Inevitable?”

Speaker: Mary Eberstadt, senior fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center, Washington, D.C

Questions to be considered:

Which came first in the Western world, the decline of religion 
(Christianity)or the decline of the family?  Are there links between
marriage, childbearing, and religiosity?  Have churches participated in
their own decline by ignoring the family factor?  What is the future of
Christianity and the family? Are there reasons for optimism?
