We know that parents, especially, and the Church in her maternal and paternal care of families, have reason to take very seriously the formation not only of young children but also of all those who will work and pray and learn and teach their families and neighbors. Those who are called to be parents will be the “first teachers,” as the Catechism says, of their children; those who are called to other forms of service, particularly to priestly fatherhood or other forms of pastoral care, will have analogous responsibility for not only teaching, but for teaching teachers.

Unfortunately, modern education has too often been premised on disrupting these chains of parental and parochial instruction. Consider that “parochial” has been used like “provincial” to mean that someone is narrow-minded or mostly ignorant, and you’ll see what I mean. Even within the Church and among many Christians, a habit of adopting modern methods with blithe confidence that concerns about spiritual formation can stay in a separate box from concerns about teaching methods has prevailed. The predictable result? Generations who believe that modern methods get at the “real facts” about the world people live in, while religion lives in a separate box that most schools today label “mere opinion.”

Dr. Peter Epps believes we can do better than that. Reaching back to the heart of the Liberal Arts tradition, Dr. Epps sees a well-tested method of teaching “how to think about what really is” that is eminently practical and possible for anyone to practice and teach in the context of everyday life–and to take as far as aptitude and leisure permit. Reading piles of Great Books is fun, but optional; understanding how thinking works, and how to look for durable wisdom (traces of divine revelation) in all human learning, is essential.

After laying some groundwork, Dr. Epps will sketch in a vision of a Liberal Arts education that will challenge you to re-think how you’ll live as a lifelong learner, and how you’ll share in the responsibility of parents and the Church, becoming a fellow learner and sometime teacher among the families and neighborhoods you form. And then he’ll ask you to help him figure out how each of us can cooperate to make that vision live and breathe.

Please feel free to join for Vespers at St. Joseph’s Old Cathedral at 6:15 before the talk.
