Friends in Christ Fr Bernard
FIC January Lecture: "Reasonable Faith: Belief as Trust in Reliable Testimony" by Fr. Bernhard Blankenhorn, Thursday January 16, 2020, 7:00 pm, Parish Hall
It can be difficult to justify our faith, to ourselves or to others. In a scientific age, faith may look superstitious. In an age of critical thinking, faith appears to be naïve.
This talk will propose that faith relies on knowledge based on testimony. Fr. Bernhard will consider the conditions by which we can reasonably accept the truth claims of witnesses, such as the apostles and saints. A vision of faith as reasonable draws on Scripture, the wisdom of the saints, and arguments offered by some contemporary philosophers.
ALL are welcome. Light refreshments served.
