OCTOBER MEETING

Our October meeting was on the 17th, and centered around an interesting book that has just been released–I BURNED FOR YOUR PEACE: Augustine’s Confessions Unpacked, by Peter Kreeft.  Our discussion leader pulled out some quotes from both Kreeft and Augustine and used them as the basis for discussion questions. He kindly provided us with copies of these so we could easily follow along, and we plunged right in, everyone enjoying taking part considering the questions.

He also reviewed the main factors of Augustine’s life, which of course was highly varied and interesting. In thinking back, I believe we could have profitably spent some time considering the very wide range of the influence of Augustine’s thought and teaching, but there just wasn’t enough time. Perhaps that is something we can look at in the future.
