New Podcast Episode: “The Paradox of Courage” with Dr. Glenn Arbery

In the book Orthodoxy, G. K. Chesterton wrote about courage: “No quality has ever so much addled the brains and tangled the definitions of merely rational sages. Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.”

Courage is vital in facing battle, persecution or martyrdom, sickness, and death. It is central to spiritual battles and speaking the truth of the Gospel to our neighbors. Relationships with others—husband/wife, parent/child, friend and friend—often require courage. And among successful executives, managerial courage in decision making is a sought-after trait.

At the same time, the word courage is used to cover up all sorts of questionable behavior and prudence requires that we know the real thing from its counterfeits. That’s why the topic of the 2018 Wyoming School of Catholic ThoughtJune 1014 here in Lander, Wyoming—is “The Paradox of Courage.”

Wyoming Catholic College’s president, Dr. Glenn Arbery, joins us on this week’s episode of the After Dinner Scholar podcast to give us a flavor of what the school will offer.
