SYMPOSIUM : On Christ & Architecture

James Didier Symposium

Join the Department of Architecture in the fourth James Didier Symposium On Christ & Architecture
Friday, 20 March 2015, in the Herrick Chapel. This event is free and open to the public.

“For God so loved the world that He gave…”

He gave us His Son – His unique, singular, begotten Son. Most importantly, He gave His son to be our Saviour, Redeemer and Friend. Thanks be to God. Concerning our vocation, He gave us – through His son – a model of service for our passions, pursuits and practice toward architecture and the built environment. He gave us both the model of giving and an example of that giving in the person of Jesus Christ.

At Judson University, we relish the distinct privilege that we have to convene and discuss freely how a living Christian faith and our vocation in architecture intersect in the person and example of Christ. You are invited to contribute to that conversation at our Symposium On Christ & Architecture on Friday, 20 March 2015, in the Herrick Chapel, on the campus of Judson University in Elgin, Illinois.
