Title: For the Sake of Character: A Trinitarian Family Ethic

Speaker: Michael Austin (Eastern Kentucky University)

Description: In this paper Austin will explore connections between the parent-child relationship, the Trinity, and character formation in the context of family life. He will first offer a Trinitarian argument for the existence of parental rights. He will then discuss ways in which the doctrine of the Trinity is relevant to how we understand the family. He will argue that a Trinitarian understanding of the family, which includes the claim that the family should reflect several important attributes of the Triune God, underscores the relevance of a variety of character traits including patience, humility, forgiveness, and love. Finally, he will consider some implications of this for the education and religious upbringing of children.
