Religious Life Seminar: C.S. Lewis & the Pandemics

 Monday, July 27, 2020 
3:00pm-4:30pm  
Repeats  
Train Station patio / Pavilion East Deck

What’s the Christian response to a year in which the entire world has suffered through COVID-19, heartbreaking racism, economic distress, political turmoil and personal suffering? C. S. Lewis offers intriguing insights and timeless wisdom to anyone who has personally suffered and/or wrestled with why there is evil in the world.

In the literary tradition of Chautauqua, join in a book discussion on C. S. Lewis’ classic, The Problem of Pain. These sessions will be a combination of lecture, group discussions, the public reading of selected sessions of the book and more. Lectures will provide background on both the author and book, enabling a deeper resonance with the book and the issues it takes on. This Religious Life Seminar is open to anyone regardless of where they may be on their spiritual journey. Previous reading of the book is not required.

The three sessions (Monday-Wednesday) will be led by Dr. Greg Linville who has done both literary and field research on Lewis. Hear the inspiration and rational behind one of the most influential books of the last 50 years; better understand Aslan and what He might say to those of us who have found our own portal to another magical place we call Lakeside in the year of the Pandemics.

Please note that the Monday and Wednesday seminars will be held at the Train Station patio and the Tuesday seminar will be held at the Pavilion East Deck.
