If you’re in or near south-central Kansas, I encourage you to attend the Summer Symposium this Thursday and Friday at the Spiritual Life Center in Wichita. The theme this year is “Conversion & Conscience”. Each year, the theme is tackled from four perspectives: Doctrine, Spirituality, Literature, and Catholic Living. I’m offering the Literature talks, focusing upon G. K. Chesterton, the great 20th c. British journalist and apologist. No less a figure than C. S. Lewis credited Chesterton’s book The Everlasting Man with moving him from agnosticism to Christian orthodoxy. Chesterton himself was a convert, so his approach to the Roman Catholic Faith is especially interesting for those who want to know how to encourage others along the roads that lead across the Tiber to Rome.
