The countdown for the first ever stateside C.S. Lewis Summer Institute
has begun! Here in Redlands, the staff of the C.S. Lewis Foundation is
hard at work preparing for yet another extraordinary Summer Institute
experience, this time to be held on the historic New England campus of
Williams College, nestled amid the scenic Berkshire Mountains of western
Massachusetts. Our theme is Love among the Ruins: On the Renewal of
Character and Culture. This conference is sure to instruct, challenge,
and inspire all who take part.
This ten-day conference will be in session from Friday, July 7, through
Sunday, July 16. Faculty and speakers include Tom Howard, Joseph Pearce,
Armand Nicholi, Jim Como, James Emery White, Nigel Goodwin, Jeanne
Murray Walker, Malcolm Guite, Karen Mulder, Dick Staub, and Ben
Patterson, among many others. (Note: If you can join us for the entire
Institute, by all means do come for one of the two weekends: I July
7-9, or II July 14-16).
Weekday seminars will permit small group discussion of a wide array of
topics relating to the theme, while workshops in dance, drama, the
visual arts and creative writing will offer unique opportunities to
explore the same through the arts. An innovative children's track,
featuring storytelling, arts and crafts and a children's choir, will
also be offered. Special programs include such trademark events as the
BAG-END CAFE� (a late night haven for Hobbits) and outstanding arts
performances in theater, film, poetry, New England Country Dance, and
visits to Tanglewood to experience the Boston Symphony with pianist,
Emanuel Ax, as well as the Boston Pops and the Tanglewood Vocal Fellows
in Bernstein on Broadway Central to all will be the joy of mere
Christians of many traditions, joining in worship together throughout
the week. In short, the 2006 C.S. Lewis Summer Institute at Williams
College is simply not to be missed!
