Is Christianity simply a way to cope with the challenges of life? An emotional experience, or perhaps a supportive community, but ultimately unrelated to reality? Does Jesus Christ have any place in the real world, or in academia? Is there any intellectual support for faith and belief?
The Veritas Forum engages students and faculty in discussions on life’s most important questions and the relevance of Jesus Christ to all of life. Below are a few highlights and photos from the February 1st Cal Poly Veritas Forum featuring Rhetoric professors Joseph Rhodes (UNLV) and Christian Lundberg (UNC – Chapel Hill) dialoguing on: “Christianity: Cornerstone or Crutch? An Agnostic and a Christian Discuss Identify and the Role of Faith.”
“The eight students who came with me to this event LOVED it. The Forum helped break the ice and we’ve begun to talk about if you can know God in a personal way.” Melissa, Freshman
“This is hands down the best Veritas Forum we’ve ever had. The guys I invited loved it.” Anthony, Senior
“Outstanding event. I’m looking forward to hear what the students I invited thought about it.” Prof M
“I invited two students, neither of whom would identity as Christians. They said they had been both talking about this, and are really searching.” Jenny, campus ministry staff
