Poellet, Michael

Michael was drafted in the apocalyptic war against Canada when militant American followers of C.S. Lewis wanted to rename Sarnia—Narnia. He was captured and his freedom was obtained through untold treasures. Currently, Michael teaches in the Philosophy Department of St. Thomas More College, University of Saskatchewan where he has just finished designing an interdisciplinary major/minor in “Social Justice and the Common Good.” Michael also serves as the pastor in a shared ministry comprised of a Lutheran and a Presbyterian congregation. When philosophy (explaining why what you do is who you are) and theology (explaining why who you are is not what you do) join together the result is probably not treasure and possibly a cracked pot. Michael is married to Renita Falkenstern and has two adult children, Nathan and Lara.
