TCF at Bryan CollegePosted by Lori Wilson on February 27, 2014
TCF recently hosted the third in a forum series on the origins of human existence, this one held at the site of the Scopes Monkey Trial in Dayton, TN. The four-day event included a private gathering of scholars in related fields, as well as a public forum at the Rhea County Courthouse featuring TCF Fellows Todd Wood and Darrel Falk.
During our time in Dayton, TCF and our partners were also invited by Bryan College to lead a chapel service for their faculty, staff and students. You can read about the service on the student news site here. The college has also made available an audio recording of the event, posted online here.
We are grateful to Bryan College for creating space for this important and difficult conversation.
Lori Wilson serves as Manager of Community Programs and Communications for The Colossian Forum. As the daughter of Baptist missionaries, she spent much of her childhood in Argentina, returning to the US to study Spanish literature at the Colorado College. Lori recently completed studies for an MA in systematic theology at King’s College London. Her work with the Forum reflects her interest in the Christian practice of hospitality–particularly, what it means to genuinely welcome those with whom we deeply disagree.
Lori and her husband Kurt (also an MK) have two teenagers. As a family, they especially enjoy cooking, good movies, and travel.
