Short. Sharp. Smart.
Everything has an edge. The edge of society, where conformity ends and creativity begins. The bleeding edge of technology. The edge of reason.
City Bible Forum and the Centre for Public Christianity invite you to take a look over the edge. To understand where our current thinking is taking us. To see what’s happening now, what’s coming next, and what you can do about it.
One hour, once a quarter, ideas that will set your teeth on edge. Two critical thinkers will take you on precise, TED-style 15-minute tours of a key social trend that’s transforming our world – then brace themselves for your questions. After the talks, Dr. Justine Toh of the Centre for Public Christianity will allow you to interview the speakers and take them to the edge of the topic.
