2:00-3:00pm Teaching Session
Sergia Hay, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Pacific Lutheran University
In a journal entry written the year before his death, Søren Kierkegaard reflected on Luke 12:49—“I came to cast fire upon the earth.” In this session, Kierkegaard's writings inspire us to examine the rich symbolic meanings of fire, and the distinction between “outer” and “inner” fire. Kierkegaard's work steers us away from comforting and easy interpretations of Christianity by challenging us to consider how it can forge us into a transformed and continually striving community. Finally, we will explore how these ideas relate to the Village's experience with the Wolverine Fire this summer.
