Artificial Intelligence

How A.I. unlocks the future

30 May, 6:30-7:45pm

Dendy Opera Quays, Sydney

Artificial intelligence influences our everyday lives - from easy autotext to creepy tailored ads to complex algorithms that replicate the human brain.

As boundaries blur and new horizons open, A.I.’s existence is exciting, confounding and concerning all at the same time.

How far will he go?

Searching for something that is lost, the lengths Jesus will go to to find what is lost and what this means for us today.

How much effort would you spend looking for something that was lost? What lost thing would you continue searching for until it was found?

The value of what is lost will impact the search. Something precious and irreplaceable will be searched for with greater effort and care than something disposable.

In this talk we consider the lengths Jesus will go to and what this means for us today.

What really matters?

What is truly important in life? Friends, family, career or something else? Jesus tells a story about what really matters

What is truly important in life? Friends, family, career or something else?
Whatever your answer, what would you give up in order to have it?
The things you are willing to give up show what you really value.

We are used to stories that highlight the value of friends and family.
When Jesus tells a story about what really matters, he says something different and the answer is shocking.
Join us this week at Bible Shots to hear Jesus' take on what really matters.

What time is it?

Peter Jensen walks us through Jesus' parables to help us see what time Jesus said it was.

What time is it? It's time to go to work. It's time to stop. It's time to eat. Identifying the time is simple but can have important consequences for how we act.

In this talk Peter Jensen takes us through two of Jesus parables show us what Jesus said the time was and what it means for us today.

The Powerful Son

Nature or nurture? Do we have the power to change?

Nature or Nurture? Tim Wardle’s recent remarkable documentary ‘Three Identical Strangers’ (see trailer here) tells the story of strangers reunited by coincidence after being born identical triplets, separated at birth and adopted by three different families. This week at City Legal, former solicitor Kanishka Raffel (Dean of Sydney) considers the question whether Jesus really has the power to change anything – including you and me.

What would Jesus say to the middle manager

Sam Chan considers what Jesus says to people who are in the middle of the corporate ladder.

Many of us will spend our working lives answering to someone else.We can gain experience, promotions and have people who answer to us but we will still be answering to others. We gain authority, yet we remain under authority.

We might not think there were many middle managers back in Jesus' day, but in the final talk in this series Sam Chan takes us through a meeting Jesus Jesus has with someone who is in this type of situation.

The scandal of Easter (Barangaroo)

Why Jesus' scandalous claim gives us hope

The Easter story gives us the hope we’ve been looking for. If a thief, on a cross next to Jesus can get saved, then surely any of us can also be saved. But, wait a minute, what exactly did the thief do to get saved? The answer might surprise you. But it’ll also be the best thing you’ll ever hear this year.

Join us for a 20 min talk explaining why Jesus' scandalous claim is not something to be upset about, but something that brings us hope.
