This October, join us at the 9th annual C.S. Lewis Southwest Regional Retreat, Friday-Sunday, Oct. 29-31.
Theme: The Weight of Glory: Reflections on Longing and Belonging
On June 8, 1941, C.S. Lewis preached his most famous sermon, “The Weight of Glory,” at Oxford University Church of St. Mary the Virgin, “to one of the largest congregations assembled there in modern times.” In the sermon, Lewis describes human longing for heaven and what our eventual “glory” means for life now as well as after death.
Come to beautiful Camp Allen in Navasota, Texas, to hear plenary speakers Dr. Malcolm Guite and Dr. Louis Markos reflect on C.S. Lewis’s renowned sermon and illustrate his insights into “glory,” “longing,” and humankind’s relationship with God.
And don’t miss our 2nd annual C.S. Lewis Southwest Regional
Writers Workshop, Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 28-30.
Theme: Writing Past the Watchful Dragons
Join our workshops and lectures for the jump-start, dusting off, or home-stretch encouragement you’ve been needing to move forward with your writing.
We all know that writing well is, in part, a talent. But moving from God-given gift to a finished — and perhaps published — product requires self-discipline and dogged perseverance, as well the encouragement and feedback of others.
We’ll create an affirming atmosphere for reading and commenting on one another’s work, hear the often grim, full-of-failure background stories of now-respected writers, and discuss specifics for creating a writing life that is more than a rainy-day hobby. Writers of all expertise levels are welcome to come celebrate the creative life — and the privilege of working in community.
