Sisters to present ‘Faith Thinkers Through the Ages’
Join the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, and Indiana State University Professor Emeritus Dr. Arthur Feinsod in person or virtually for “Faith Thinkers Through the Ages,” scheduled to take place on the following Saturdays: Oct. 9, Oct. 30, Nov. 6, Nov. 20 and Dec. 4.
The workshop series will take place in the Foley Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center. Each workshop will begin at 9 a.m., and conclude at noon.
Learn more about the great faith thinkers from the 17th to the 20th centuries, including Pascal, Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and more. Each seminar will focus on applying their ideas to faith here and now, while drawing on personal perspectives from participants.
“This series will offer an opportunity to engage with great thinkers who explored powerful ideas related to faith in general and to their own particular faith journeys, which can apply to all of us as individuals,” Feinsod said. “Though each of these faith thinkers belonged to a specific organized religion, the most prominent attribute for each of them is their own private individual quest for meaning in their lives through faith in a higher power, whatever that may be for each of them.”
Feinsod said each workshop will begin with a Power Point lecture followed by discussion.
“Each seminar can be taken independently of the others though taking multiple ones will provide the advantage of enabling participants to draw parallels and contrasts with ideas discussed in earlier seminars,” he said. “Once we grasp the key ideas, we will apply and reflect on those key ideas as they pertain to each of our understandings of faith in general and our own individual experiences of faith.”
Cost is $20 per session or $90 for all five sessions. The registration deadline is Oct. 2 for all sessions or four days prior to individual sessions.
