Our November meeting is this coming Monday, November 9 at 7:15 pm. We will meet again in person at Risen Christ Catholic Church at 3060 South Monaco Parkway. We’ll be discussing Chapter 6, The Paradoxes of Christianity in Orthodoxy.
“And the more I considered Christianity, the more I found that while it had established a rule and order, the chief aim of that order was to give room for good things to run wild.”
This could be considered the pivotal chapter in Orthodoxy, and it offers great insights into Chesterton’s thinking about paradox and the thrill he finds in Christianity. In it we find Chesterton’s definition of courage, one of the most accurate and rousing to be found anywhere. And the chapter ends with three pages of some of the most soaring writing in all of Chesterton.
I hope everyone is staying healthy.
Please plan to join us on Monday for what promises to be a lively discussion of a terrific chapter.
