2010 Southwest Regional Retreat and Writers Workshop at Camp Allen
October 29-31, 2010
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.
This October, join us at the 8th annual C.S. Lewis Southwest Regional Retreat for
The Weight of Glory: Reflections on Longing and Belonging
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.
