Many Thanks to the Chesterton Society

I had a marvelous time discussing the power of cinema with those who attended the Chesterton Society’s Seattle gathering last night in the Falcon Lounge at Seattle Pacific.

Thanks to Kirk Kanzelberger for the invitation and the warm welcome, to Mark Shea for the generous introduction, and to the directors (Peter D. Beaulieu, Ph.D.; James R. Felak, Ph.D.; Tomás A. Gahan, J.D.; Brian R. Glenney; Timothy J. Simunds, Treasurer; and Andrew A. Tadie, Ph.D.) for making these gatherings possible. And for taking me out to a memorable dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant.

As I could learn so much from most of the people there, I felt a bit intimidated at the podium. But the attendees were enthusiastic, and I really enjoyed their questions and company.

Thanks also to Michael Adeney for managing the book table and distributing copies of Through a Screen Darkly. (I’ll be speaking at Michael’s wonderful bookstore, Harvest Logos Bookstore, tomorrow night at 5 p.m.)
