Prophecy arose at a particular time in the history of Israel and died out after a few centuries, but it has lived on in different ways throughout the centuries.  Briefly we will explore the task of the prophets of ancient Israel, but our main concern in these two presentations will be on the nature of prophecy as it developed beyond Israel in the early Church and in other religious traditions.

How has the rise (and the apparent insidious use) of Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms changed American politics, commerce, and life itself? How has so-called "big data" complicated the situation?

The CG Forum offers an opportunity for open and interactive discussion with Jim Kenney (and friends) on a variety of timely topics. The format includes opening remarks by Jim (and his guest or guests) and then a lively Q and A segment. There will always be time allowed for “off-topic” questions and discussion.

Thomas Friedman’s latest book addresses the pace of change in our evolving culture. And he asks us to “slow down.” In Thank You for Being Late, a work unlike anything he has attempted before, Friedman takes on the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world today and explains how to get the most out of them and cushion their worst impacts.

Steven Pinker is an evolutionary psychologist, an expert in human behavior and its evolutionary adaptations. He is the acclaimed author of many books, including The Better Angels of Our Nature–Why Violence Has Declined. His latest, Enlightenment Now, is his finest yet. He argues compellingly that the key values, which animated the 18th-century Enlightenment – humanism, reason, and science – are still active (and even dominant) in human culture.
