Theology and Time Travel: Free Will & Destiny in Narrative

July 12, 20194:00 pm4:50 pm
Modern time travel stories must answer this question: Were we to travel to the past, could we change it, and in so doing, change our present? This question is inextricably linked with our view of God’s sovereignty, God’s agency, and the free will of the creation. It also touches on the question of where God exists in time: Does God experience time with God’s creation? Does God act outside of time? Does God know all of time in its entirety, and if so, why does God not prevent world tragedies? This workshop will be lead with a presentation, then group conversations to discuss the nature of God in our time travel tropes.
