  • Spring Arbor University is hosting a summer series of conversations on COVID-19. This pandemic has upended our lives and brought many hidden aspects of our society to light. In times of uncertainty and change, it’s more important than ever to step back and bring the wisdom of the past to bear on the confusion of the present. As a “community of learners distinguished by our lifelong involvement in the study and application of the liberal arts,” SAU is delighted to invite all current students, alumni, and community members to join us for these conversations, which are led by some of our most outstanding faculty.
 
  • If you are interested in participating in any of these conversations, sign up using the form below. Each Monday you’ll get an email introducing that week’s topic with a brief video or written description. The professors will share an essay or other materials that you are encouraged to read. Then on Thursday evening at 7:30 ET the professors will lead a conversation via Zoom and include time for Q&A.
 
  • Here are the topics we plan to cover over the coming weeks:
 
  • “The History of Pandemics,” with Mark Correll and Mark Edwards
  • “Rethinking the Goodness of Creation: Lessons from the Book of Job,” with Tom Holsinger-Friesen and Ken Brewer
  • “Apocalyptic Art,” with Jonathan Rinck
  • “The Scientific Attitude: What It Is and Why It’s Important,” with Tom Kuntzleman
  • “Misinformation and Fake News in a Pandemic,” with Jeff Bilbro and Robbie Bolton
  • “COVID-19 and Contemplative Practices: Spiritual Practices that Can Move Us from Fear to Freedom in Seasons of Sickness and Uncertainty,” with Mary Darling
