The April Faithful Questions is coming up – The Bible

The April Faithful Questions is almost here! It’s next Tuesday (the regularly scheduled 2nd Tuesday of the Month) at 7 PM. The topic is “Is the Bible the word of God?”

The Bible is an immensely complicated work with many different human authors and literary styles. To compound the confusion, it is referred to as ‘written by God’. In this talk, we’ll discuss how to read the Bible and how to understand it’s divine authorship.

Links from Faithful Questions talk

I shared a number of links at the March 16th Faithful Questions talk about bringing our adult children back to the faith. Here they are in one easy reference place:

The March Faithful Questions is coming up – Adult Children

The March Faithful Questions is almost here! It’s next Tuesday at 7 PM. The topic is “How can I bring my adult children back to the Church?”

Many of us have children who have stopped practicing our faith or worse, left it entirely. And to add insult to injury, too frequently our attempts to talk to our children are counter-productive and end up pushing them further from the Church. In this talk, Deacon Ken will do his best to give an entirely new framework for how we can more productively re-evangelize our adult children.

The February Faithful Questions is coming up – Lent and the Pandemic

The February Faithful Questions is almost here! It’s next Tuesday (the regularly scheduled 2nd Tuesday of the Month) at 7 PM. The topic is “How can I make the most of Lent during the Pandemic?”

While there is hope more will open at Church during Lent, there is no doubt that what we can do at Church will still be limited. How then are we to make the most of Lent? In this talk, we will do our best to give creative ideas for making this Lent fruitful towards helping us embrace the spirit and goals of the season.

The January Faithful Questions coming up – Just War

The January Faithful Questions is almost here! It’s next Tuesday (the regularly scheduled 2nd Tuesday of the Month) at 7 PM. The topic is “Is it ever moral to go to war?”

The message of Christ emphasizes loving our enemy and turning the other cheek. As a result, many wonder if this means we should be pacifists. In this talk we’ll discuss both the history and the current Church teaching regarding whether or when a country can morally fight a war.

December Faithful Questions coming up – Faith and Science

The December Faithful Questions is a week early this month, to avoid the Holy Day of Obligation and Solemnity for the Immaculate Conception of Mary on the 8th. (For clarity, the obligation is abrogated this year due to COVID-19.)

Thus this Month, Faithful Questions will be on Tuesday December 1st at 7:00 PM. The topic is “Is there a conflict between Faith and Science?”

Many of us struggle with whether there are conflicts between science and our faith. Are there scientific discoveries that are at odds with our Faith? If so, how am I to resolve that conflict? The talk aims to both put your mind at ease and help you better understand how our faith and scientific research can work together for the betterment of humanity.

The November Faithful Questions talk is on Tues. Nov. 10th

It’s coming up quickly again… we’re just a week away as of this post. Here are the details:

Date/time:
Tuesday November 10th at 7 PM

Topic:
What is the Theology of the Body?

Overview:
If you look at polling of Catholics, one of the biggest areas that they struggle with is the Church teaching on sexuality. There are two ways to address this problem. One is topic by topic (abortion, birth control, sex outside of marriage, etc.). Saint Pope John Paul took the opposite approach and blessed the world with a holistic sexual theological framework that takes a broad-view look at the purpose and meaning of human sexuality. In this talk, I’ll do my best to give an extremely brief overview of that theology with the hope it will encourage Catholics to dig deeper into this great gift to the Church.

October Faithful Questions talk – Voting

On Tuesday October 13th we will have our next first Faithful Questions talk. Here are the details:

Title: How should I decide who to vote for?

Summary:

With another contentious election just weeks away, many Catholics are unsure who they should vote for. Various voices within the Church give different answers. And so we are left to wonder, is there an official answer from the Church? And if not, how should our faith guide us when we are making our choices? In this talk, Deacon Ken will use the official documents of the Church to help answer these questions.
