C. S. Lewis on Happiness and the Meaning of Life
Sunday, December 2 at 11:15am in MacColl Auditorium - Leading philosophers/theologians (e.g., Augustine, Boethius, Anselm, Aquinas, Calvin, Edwards) for two millennia believed that what we today refer to as "the meaning of life" is perfect happiness/beatitude. C. S. Lewis also affirmed that the meaning of life is perfect happiness. Dr. Stewart Goetz will give an overview of C. S. Lewis' understanding of happiness and its relationship to the idea of death to self.

Giving changes us. The act of generosity takes the ordinary and transforms our gifts into something more, something holy. An essential part of the Christian life is to give back a portion of the many blessings we have received as an expression of gratitude and love. St. Thomas’ Church invite people of all ages to make sacrificial and meaningful gifts of time, talent, treasure to the glory of God and the building of God’s kingdom in our corner of the world and beyond.
