Attorney Ministries

Dallas Chapter


Welcome!


Welcome to the Christian Legal Society of Dallas web page!  We exist to explore how the gospel of Jesus Christ transforms law practice and gives hope and purpose that cannot be found anywhere else. We meet on the third Thursday of every month (at the Belo Mansion in downtown Dallas) to discuss these themes over lunch, usually with a guest speaker. We also have prayer groups, bible studies, socials, and service projects throughout the year. We would love to see you at one of our meetings. If you have questions, please contact us!
 

 

Monthly Luncheon


Thursday, May 18 @ noon - Belo Mansion 
 

Intelligent Design and the Author of the CosmosPresented by Dr. Jonathan Witt

Our worldview shapes both our professional and personal lives, and how we think we got here especially impacts our culture and legal system. So, as the debate over intelligent design heats up in Texas, we have invited an expert to address us about it at our May meeting.        Richard Dawkins famously said that Darwinism made it possible to be “an intellectually fulfilled atheist.” But scientific discoveries since Darwin's time suggest that life and the universe are the result not of evolution, but of intelligent design. Author Jonathan Witt will discuss these discoveries, situate the theory of intelligent design (ID) in the larger origins debate, and tell why he’s convinced the debate over ID is crucial to the fate of our culture. Witt will also answer questions about Discovery Institute’s new branch, Discovery Institute-Dallas, and talk about how the Darwinism-vs-design debate is heating up in Texas.     Jonathan Witt, Ph.D. is a senior research fellow and senior project manager of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture (Discovery.org/CSC), the institutional hub for the theory of intelligent design. Witt is co-author of Intelligent Design Uncensored (IVP) and A Meaningful World: How the Arts and Sciences Reveal the Genius of Nature (IVP). He is a native of Amarillo, Texas, and now lives in Denton.
