Why This Theme?
In Genesis 1 God creates the world and calls it good. In John 3, we learn that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son.
Yet in John 1 we are admonished, “Love not the world,” and in Romans, “Do not be conformed to the World.”
It would seem the Bible presents two very different things that we give the name “Worlds.” Greek gives two main words for the world: Cosmos and Aion. In Latin, these are Mundus and Saecula.
What, then, is the World? Or rather, what are the Worlds and how should we live in and relate to them? Does the Christian Classical tradition offer insight on this question? Does it help us live wisely in this present World? We think so. Come contemplate worlds with us!

Francis Marion Hotel
The historic Francis Marion Hotel, named for the Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion, the “Swamp Fox,” has a long tradition of gracious service, elegant accommodations, and hosting splendid banquets and events dating back to its opening in 1924. Built by local investors at a cost of $1.5 million from plans by noted New York architect W.L. Stoddard, the Francis Marion was the largest and grandest hotel in the Carolinas. The 1920s was the Golden Age of railroads, radio and grand hotels, and the Charleston Renaissance was in full bloom and the Francis Marion Hotel was “the place to be”.
