2017 L'Abri Lectures
Covenant College is pleased to host the L’Abri Lectures at Covenant College—an open time of honest questions and honest answers about the Christian faith. The lectures will take place on October 28, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
In the 1960s and '70s, Covenant College hosted L’Abri Conferences on campus, welcomed Francis Schaeffer to speak in chapel, and maintained a close tie with many members of the L’Abri community. L'Abri is a French word that means "shelter," and L'Abri communities are study centers in Europe, Asia, and America where Christian and non-Christian individuals have the opportunity to seek answers to honest questions about God and the significance of human life.
Last year, the College reunited with L’Abri to form the inaugural L’Abri Lectures event at Covenant College—we were overwhelmed by the response and gladdened by the stories we heard about how much it benefited those who took part.
This year's event will again include three lectures followed by time for questions and discussion. Read on for more information about each of the three lectures and register today to join us! Lunch will be provided at the event along with morning and afternoon tea, coffee, and refreshments.
The lectures are open to all ages, although no childcare will be provided. General admission is $25 and student admission is $5 with a valid student ID.
