    Montgomery College to Present ‘Navigating Uncertainties’ Colloquium
    Experts with Varying Perspectives to Address Topic, April 28

    Montgomery College will present a colloquium, entitled “Navigating Uncertainties,” on Thursday, April 28, at 7 p.m.  A panel of leading experts, including scientists, a philosopher and artist, a theologian, educators, and a political scientist will examine the topic from a variety of perspectives.  The colloquium will take place in Room 122 of the College’s Health Sciences Center, 7977 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, Md.  The event is free and open to the public.

    How do you discover your beliefs when you don’t know what to believe?  How do you correct errors in your beliefs?  Can people with different beliefs ultimately agree?  These questions will be discussed by the colloquium’s panelists and then, with the audience, in an intriguing dialogue.

    Panelists confirmed to date include Dr. Duncan McIntosh, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Silver Spring; Dr. Robert Shoenberg, former English professor and current Montgomery College Board of Trustees member; Dr. Tecola W. Hagos, painter, political scientist, and professor of English and philosophy at Montgomery College; Dr. William Soderberg, philosophy professor at Montgomery College; Karl Smith, professor of social sciences at Montgomery College; Dr. Max Nam, physics professor at Montgomery College; and Dr. Harold Williams, astrophysicist and professor of astronomy at Montgomery College.

    For more information about the colloquium, call Dr. Harold Williams at 301-650-1463 or e-mail him at  For directions to the Health Sciences Center, visit and click on Directories, or call 301-279-5000.
