Problems of Faith, Part 1: Dealing with Philosophical Theology and Faith Crises

Greg Allen is a theology teacher and the current Ignatian Formation Director at Jesuit High School. He co-wrote the curriculum text for the "Problems of Faith" course at Jesuit. This presentation will lay the foundation for exploring problems people find themselves facing as they move through their faith life: What is Real? How do we come to know reality? What is religious experience and religious faith? How is faith developed?

Faith and Science in the World

Science and religion are often posed as two ends of a dichotomy. On one end, we have rational, concrete science, and on the other, we have (what some people think of as) blind, irrational faith. But the truth is that science and religion need each other: they are two complimentary halves of a greater whole. Lara Shamieh, Ph.D., biochemist and practicing Catholic, will explore the intersection of science and faith, and what the two can tell us about the world.

Problems of Faith, Part 2


In Part 2 of this series, theology teacher and JHS Ignatian Formation Director Greg Allen will explore key problems people face in their faith lives, which often lead to faith crises. He will address classic answers, problematic issues, and modern revisioning of key problems of faith: Is there a God? What is the Trinity? Why do bad things happen to good people? What is the nature of suffering? Is there an afterlife?
