Dr. Justin AndersonDr. Justin Anderson reflects on Authenticity and Grace: Corridors of the Heart in the third of four retreats for faculty and administrators of all faiths.

The Heart of the University Retreat Series gives faculty and administrators of all faiths the opportunity for input and guided reflection. The series is co-sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry, and the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership.

The third retreat, given by Dr. Justin Anderson on the theme of Authenticity and Grace: Corridors of the Heart will be held on Tuesday, February 4, 2014, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Chancellor’s Suite, Student Center.

Authenticity is a near synonym of transparency. When one meets an authentic person, one meets the heart of the person. During this retreat we will seek to unlock not only personal authenticity as a corridor of the heart, but how it is that God’s grace also travels the corridors of our hearts. Thus, authenticity becomes not only a sign of the heart of the person, but also through her/him, a way we encounter the living God.

Justin M. Anderson, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Christian Ethics in the School of Theology. He earned both his Ph.D. and M.Phil. from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Louvain). His current research focuses on virtue and its relation to grace in Aquinas’ moral science. He has published on Aquinas’ understanding of grace in the life of the unbeliever.
