Josh will be bringing us the following workshop
Developing a Christian Worldview: The Liberal Arts Journey. The philosopher Allan Bloom stated that “education is the movement from darkness into light.” In a modern culture that favours the easy and preferred answers, a liberal arts education is necessary in helping students ask the bigger questions by awakening that part of them that seeks completion. At a time when the modern university, and by extension the greater culture, is experiencing an intellectual and spiritual crisis and producing souls without longing, there’s no better time to introduce your kids to a liberal education that opens them up to seeking truth, goodness, and beauty. We’ll take a look at the ancient Greek foundations of the liberal arts, its Christian heritage, and how you can prepare for the practical journey through high school and into university.
