Theme: Choosing Heaven: Eternity in the Here & Now
Choices define us and shape our future existence, not only in terms of where we spend eternity, but also who we become on our journey. But how can Heaven serve as a practical reality, giving shape to the choices we make every day?
Come find out! Come away to the piney woods of Camp Allen, to good food and to laughter, learning, and community. Come join us as Professor Joseph Pearce helps us see through the lens of C.S. Lewis’s unique experience as relayed in The Great Divorce, his fictional tale of a transformative bus ride to Heaven.
Come to open your heart and mind and grow, as together we learn to choose the ways of Heaven in our everyday lives.
