All Wilmette Institute’s Web Talks are free and open to the public, but they require you to sign up in advance. Check “Web Talks/Webinars” in this issue; or watch for flyers and announcements; or keep checking and then clicking on “Web Talks.”

The Web Talks use a system that transmits audio and video of musical devotionals that precede the talks, then the speakers and the PowerPoint slides that speakers use. Audience members listening to the live broadcast can comment on the talks and ask questions by typing them into a “chat” box.

The talks are held on Sundays at 2 p.m. Eastern Time (1 p.m. CT; 12 noon MT; 11 a.m. PT; 7 p.m. in the UK.; 8 p.m. in Western Europe).

After a live Web Talk is given, it is generally posted on the Wilmette Institute’s YouTube channel, usually within 24 hours, where you can access most of the talks from 2015 and 2016.
