Geneva Lecture Philosophy
The Geneva Lecture serves the Queen's University community with the original idea of the university--the gift of Christian scholarship. "For Christians thinking is part of believing." St. Augustine wrote: "not everyone who thinks believes, since many think in order not to believe; but everyone who believes thinks, thinks in believing and believes in thinking."
Since 1992 outstanding Christian scholars have come as our guests to speak on campus from varied disciplines(see list), but informed by that same faith that seeks understanding.
The goal of the Geneva Lecture is to offer our campus an engaging Christian academic perspective in an area relevant to our university culture. We invite you to join us as we engage our minds and our souls.
How Porn Fuels Rape Culture
Geneva House, in partnership with Power to Change, invites you to a free lecture by Daniel Gilman from Strength to Fight.
Daniel always stood up for justice. Even as a very young boy when some other kids formed a group of bullies, Daniel tried to rally his friends to counter-bully the bullies. As he grew older and wiser he applied himself to the study of justice, becoming an expert on the abolition of the British Slave Trade, on which he wrote his Masters Thesis. He has quickly become a much sought-after speaker across Canada on a variety of social justice issues, always bringing with him a genuine love and understanding of the dignity of all people. Respected by the elite of Canada, whom he has worked side by side with on Parliament Hill for six years, and loved by the downtrodden in the low-income neighbourhood he chooses to live and volunteer in, Daniel has sought to put his vast knowledge of justice to real and practical use.
