Three Theories of Everything

February 21, 2018

By Guest Speaker Ellis Potter of L'Abri, Switzerland.

What is reality? What is the meaning of human life? Why do we suffer? Who am I? This talk explores 3 major worldviews that propose radically different answers to these eternal questions. These 3 worldviews, and the unique hope that each offers to humanity, have profoundly different consequences for how we see reality and our place in it.

Ellis H. Potter has explored various worldviews (religious and non-religious) at close range. He is a former Buddhist monk, and now Christian minister resident in Switzerland. He is a well-travelled international speaker and the author of "3 Theories of Everything" and "How do you know that?"
