A Poll: Good and Bad Catholic Speakers
Posted by nechc on July 24, 2007
One of the things we have been working on concerning a Catholic conference is ‘where do homeschoolers fit.’ So far I have met with the Sister who runs the Catholic schools, the priest who runs a Men’s Conference with those interested in a Women’s Conference and I still need to meet the Sister in charge of Religious Education. All this before we meet the Bishop.
The group running a Women’s Conference is going very well and we had a very interesting discussion about Conservative Vs Liberal. The consensus was drawn more easily than I could have hoped in a group as diverse as we are. Our goal is to drop those labels entirely. We plan to chose speakers who are challenging, intelligent, humorous and who are theologically sound in matters of Faith.
I was very pleased. The woman searching out possibilities brought us names I had not heard as well as famous women, (in Catholic circles) and women from all walks of life.
So what about you? What speakers have you heard and loved? Who just parroted what was in their book? Who challenged you? Inspired? Healed? Who did you have high hopes for only to find their Theology was outside of the Magisterium?
