NOVEMBER EVENT: November 28, 2016
This topic is of great value. Perhaps you feel as though society looks at you as though you’re a fundamentalist because you are a practicing Catholic.
We can come to understand many things, through reason. Is all that we call true a human construction that only exists relative to us? Is the Bible a book of myths, or is it in some sense true? Is anything in the Bible literally true? Is science (as we now define it) the only source of truth?
David Klassen – B.A. (English) and LL.B (law degree), both from U.B.C., M.A. (Philosophy) Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ph.D. (Philosophy), The Catholic University of America.
David will speak on the harmony of faith and reason in Aquinas, John Paul II and Benedict XVI. David practiced law in Vancouver for 15 years before studying philosophy. He’s taught philosophy at Corpus Christi and Saint Mark’s and will be teaching at Catholic Pacific College in the next term. (The more you listen to his presentations, the better your brain works! He doesn’t confuse you with obscure words and you’ll quickly get the hang of using reasoning and philosophy to solve problems.)
Daniel Hahn – B.A. Philosophy from Simon Fraser University, M.T.S. (Master of Theological Studies) from St. Marks College @ UBC.
Daniel will touch on Benedict’s Regensberg lecture and relate it to the sources of our faith, focusing particularly on scripture. He will address some key magisterial documents, such as The Second Vatican Councils Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation Dei Verbum and other Vatican sources. He will be elaborating on the views of Pope Emeritus Benedict the 16th on the topic as found in some of his other writings and how this was applied to specific doctrines. Daniel is a father of 4 and was the Coordinator for Archdiocese Office of Service & Justice in 2009/2010. He currently works as the Client Care Manager for a not for profit Credit Counselling Service Provider.
