Scripture is full of examples of visions. Dreams are an important part of many biblical stories and passages. We know from sleep studies that dreaming is part of a human’s healthy sleep cycle. This Hall of Reason will provide the scientific underpinnings of dreams, including how science evaluates visions and visionaries. We will discuss this scientific understanding in light of God’s message of dreams and visions in scripture. Hall of Reason meets in the Lamb & Scroll (LTL dining hall). No need to register.
