At the 17th annual Dillard Forum September 29-30, Dr. James Howell spoke on The Mystery and Miracle of Birth.  He focused on the connections between our own births, the experience of having children, and the new birth of the Christian life.  Dr. Howell guided our thinking about how we once lived in utero, the birth process, infertility, adoption, why we have children, and how God came to us first in Mary’s womb and then as an infant.

The Dillard Forum challenged us intellectually again this year and gave us a new theological perspective on birth with Dr. Howell’s presentations.
