What Is Truth?
Considering the Implications of Truth in a Truth-less World
A Higher Things Retreat for High School Students in 9-12 Grades
January 3-4, 2020
Faith Lutheran Church, 714 North Grand Avenue, Pierre, SD

"What is truth?"  That is the famous question that Pontius Pilate asked Jesus some 2,000 years ago.  And it is the same question asked by millions of people today.  So what is truth?  How do we know truth?  Where do we find truth?  And once we receive the truth, how do we defend it?  These questions and more will be covered in this Higher Things Retreat designed for high school students in grades 9-12.  The sessions are designed to not only help students understand Truth from a Christian perspective, but also defend Truth from competing ideologies at work in this complex world that students find themselves in.  

Leading the discussions will be Rev. Dr. Matthew Richard, Pastor, St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Minot, ND.  He is the author of the book, "Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up: 12 False Christ's."
