On Thursday, April 25, 2013, Etcetera held an open discussion entitled “The Status of God in the 21st Century,” an in-depth look at our relationship with – and the relevancy of – God, religion and spirituality in 2013. Presenters were Justin Schieber and Scott Smith.

Scott Smith is a lifelong Christian and an active member of Church of the Living God in Traverse City. He enjoys blogging and teaching on Christian theology and defense as well as engaging skeptics in debate regarding Christian truth claims.
