Chatting with a Catholic Deacon tonight… what should I ask?

Chatting with a Catholic Deacon tonight… what should I ask? July 23, 2010

The deacon at the local parish has been kind enough to set aside some time to chat with me tonight.  I’m not having a debate, but a conversation.  I’ve been reading plenty of apologetics and having debates of my own, but I was planning to have this be a less academic-themed discussion.

The main question I’d like to discuss is what sustains him in his faith.  I’m curious as to whether it’s mostly the kind of academic/philosophical ideas that I’ve been discussing here or the more experiential things that Justin Martyr supports.  I’d also be curious to hear his thoughts on what prompts conversion or ought to prompt conversion.

Anything people think I ought to ask in particular?
