Overview

Open Forums are specifically designed for skeptics or those wrestling with the claims of Christianity. Each Open Forum included a brief concert by guest artists followed by a talk and open mic Q&A with Timothy Keller. This audio recording includes the talk only.

Message Summary

People are always looking for happiness, often searching harder when it’s missing and ending up with lots of emotional ups and downs. Trying to fill this emptiness with things from this world can lead to habits we can’t shake, letdowns, and the understanding that these things just aren’t enough. But, the Christian faith has an answer. It says that real happiness and meaning can come from a relationship with God and a life filled with a powerful story.
