We all grow up eventually.
Some more quickly than others.

When Aline loses her father, she refuses to believe he’s really gone. Then one night, in her sleepy New Brunswick village, Aline sees a vision of a glowing apple tree. As the whispers of the forest propel her into a courageous quest, she encounters a force more powerful than even a child could imagine.

Even though her mother can’t bring herself to believe in miracles, Aline steps into a world aglow with innocence and hope. But is Aline’s faith strong enough to reunite her with what they have lost?

A commissioned world premiere written by distinguished TWU alumna M.J. Eden (’10), As Little Children lights up the stage with wonder, humour, and imagination.

Featuring Elizabeth Drummond, Cody Friesen, Sharra Ganzeveld, and Shelby Wyminga.
Director Kate Muchmore.
Lighting Designer Lora-Lynne Frewing ('05).
Stage Managers Teagan Plett, Jordan Klassen, and Hina Nishioka.

Coming Events in February

Thursday, February 5th

More than Myth?: A discussion of topics introducing the new book with the same title
Paul Brown - "New wine in new wineskins: Changing the traditional categories in the creation and evolution debate"

Time: 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Location: Auditorium, Northwest Building

The discussion of biology, creation, and evolution with implications for our Christian faith is often dominated by certain voices that seem to follow one of two widely divergent systems of thought. We think the answer may be somewhere in the middle, but not just somewhere in the middle. The issues demand faithfulness to historic Christian foundations and new ways of thinking - new categories and different conceptions in science. This event on Science and Christian Faith discusses topics raised in the recent book edited by Robert Stackpole and Paul Brown: More than Myth? Seeking the full truth about Genesis, creation, and evolution. There will be talks by Paul Brown (Professor, TWU) on Thursday and Robert Stackpole (formerly Professor at RPC, currently The St. Terese Institute) on Friday. Both evenings include a panel after the talk for further discussion featuring distinguished guests and book contributors: Ann Gauger (Biologic Institute), Casey Luskin (Discovery Institute), and Fr. Michael Chaberek (Thomas Aquinas College).

Sponsored by TWU Science and Christian Faith (NATS), Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences. For more information contact Paul Brown at paul.brown@twu.ca.

Centre for Spiritual Formation in Higher Education Lecture
Bill Strom, Ph.D., Professor of Media + Communication - "Explorations in Covenant and Virtue for Close Relationships: Perspectives for Spiritual Formation"

Time: 7:30 - 9:00 pm
Location: Graduate Collegium, Fosmark Centre

This talk considers covenant studies and personal virtue as lenses for understanding communication in close relationships. The presentation will include original and extant research in communication and positive psychology within a Christian worldview. The virtues of self-control, humility, work, committed faithfulness, and wisdom are examined in their social construction between relaters. Relevant for anyone interested in close relationships, marriage and family, and social psychology.

Bio: Bill Strom is professor of communication at Trinity Western University in Langley, BC where he teaches communication theory, relational communication, persuasion, public speaking and organizational communication.
