Thursday Diary and Slideshow: Kierkegaard & Theology on Tap
July 27,
2012

After their final class on Genesis about the role of faith in God’s command to Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, the students further explored the nature of faith in Kierkegaard’s Fear and Trembling. Among the questions considered were, “Where does reason end and faith begin?” and “Is faith rational?”

Following afternoon sports, the evening study period in the library, and a rosary in the Chapel, chaplain Rev. Sebastian Walshe, O.Praem., ('94) held a (root beer) "Theology on Tap" in the coffee shop. There he answered students’ questions about theology, philosophy, morality, and a number of other topics. For example, one student asked how evil is permissible in a world governed by an Infinite Good. Another student asked, “What are the best and worst parts about Thomas Aquinas College?” Fr. Sebastian replied, “The best part is the education; the worst is leaving when you’re done after four years.”
