In 2014, we ran a 10-week lecture series with dinner and discussion. Topics included the Big Bang, complexity and its origins, the nature of evil, Christianity and the scientific revolution, chaos theory and the role of the Creator, and evolution. Lecturers included scientists and clergy from the community. Each week began with dinner, followed by a 30-minute lecture on the topic for that week, which segued into discussions at the different dinner tables.
