This October, join us at the 9th annual C.S. Lewis Southwest Regional Retreat for Fling Wide the Gates: C.S. Lewis & the Pursuit of Joy, October 28th-30th.

Come to beautiful Camp Allen in Navasota, Texas, to hear Dr. Bruce L. Edwards, author/editor of several significant books on C.S. Lewis, as he joins us in celebrating the 80th anniversary of Lewis’s conversion to Christianity in September 1931.
