The opening day began with a discussion on theology just like the opening discussion the year prior. Also returning to the opening discussion was politician and Catholic Theologian John Fisher Natter talking about his new book Kierkegaard: The Working Christian. Joining him in the discussion was Unitarian Pastor Henry John Ludd talking about the Works of Love, and Priest Luke Schuster who talked about Kierkegaard's connections to Catholicism and mysticism. The next discussion dealt with Hegelian philosophy and its application to Lovian history and politics. Afterwards, John Fisher Nattar returned to defend the existence of God against LFA leader Jeremy Major. The event was attended by nearly double the people who attended the previous year's discussion between Fisher and Nattar. The final event was attended by about 350 people discussing postmodern metaphysics and literary theory in connection with the works of the late Umberto Eco.
