11:00 a.m. – Service: 12th Annual Evolution Weekend: What Does It Mean to Be Evolved?, led by Dr. Mike Kohut

Since even before the publication of Darwin’s Origins of Species in 1859, people have wondered about the implications of evolutionary origins for humans. In this message, I will discuss several attempted answers, and their problems. In the end, I argue the greatest implication is that being evolved creatures makes us free to figure out how we ought to be in the world without reference to how we got here.

Music will be provided by Alan Black

11:00 a.m. – Religious Exploration:
