Does truth matter?
As our “knowledge” doubles in size every few months and we are constantly inundated with the noise of social media, news outlets, and the relentless stream of facts and opinion, many feel overwhelmed. What is true? Which facts matter? What can we trust—and how do we learn to trust it? These may be questions of wisdom more than data, discerning more than liking, seasoned practice more than quick judgment.
You are invited to join us for a public lecture by Dr. Fred Aquino, professor of theology and a recognized specialist in the study of knowledge. Keenly aware of the unique challenges of the 21st century, Dr. Aquino finds the teachings and practices of ancient Christian monastics provide surprising help for those of us today who find ourselves bewildered by the competing truth claims all around us.
The lecture is free and open to the public. We hope you will join us for this delightful and informative evening.
