6 P.M. Dinner and Chesterton Show
After the dinner Dr. John “Chuck” Chalberg will portray G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) famous 20th century Catholic writer.
G. K. Chesterton journeys all the way from England to offer his own unique views on everything from the virtues of things small, whether they be families or pubs, to the evils of things large, whether they be imperialist schemes or socialist states. A man of paradox and humor, he will surprise you, confound you, and provoke you.
This is the Englishman who helped deliver his fellow countryman C.S. Lewis to Christianity. What might he have in store for you? "The Christian ideal has been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried." "Art consists of limitation. The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame."
