Mount Tamborine Convention Centre is hosting an Apologetics Conference in May 2022, by Dr. Justine Toh.
Our heart is restless until it rests in you, Augustine famously wrote. If the biblical narrative tells a grand story of how God tirelessly pursues his people, this lecture will explore some of the many ways that people restlessly seek after God, even if they don’t know it.
Justine will take listeners on a cultural tour of human restlessness and existential angst in W.E.I.R.D. societies (nations that are Western, Educated, Industrialised, Rich and Democratic). Through an audit of various cultural stories at work in the contemporary West, we will examine some of the ways that people seek after fullness apart from God, and probe the opportunities—the longings, desires, and cross pressures—that these open up for the in breaking of the gospel.
Think about: expressive individualism, meritocracy, wellness culture, modern narratives of self-discovery in the wild, modern Stoicism, the Australian dream of home ownership, and more.
Date: 13th to 15thj May 2022 (originally scheduled for August 20th to 27th 2021, but cancelled due to covid.)
