One of the central tenants of humanism is that knowledge is derived from observation of the natural world instead of from divine revelation. A relatively new tool in viewing the natural world is geographic information systems (GIS) that can collect, summarize, and display the natural and made-made world through computer generated maps.  For example, we have seen the data maps relating to COVID-19 https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html. The ability to visually display relationships is of increasing importance to many issues such as crime, hunger, poverty, health, environment,  and climate. Our speaker on April 24 at 7:00 pm CDT will be Jeremy Bartley, a senior executive of ESRI, the world leader in GIS mapping. Jeremy is a native of Wichita and a graduate of KU.  Contact the church office for Zoom information.
