*_C.S. Lewis As Pilgrim Guide In A Pluralistic Age_*__
*San Diego, California ** June 28 - July 1, 2007*
_We live* *in a world that is increasingly diverse._ As Christians, we
must be willing to understand and live with people of other beliefs
while also holding fast to what we know to be true. Yet how do we
achieve this delicate balance between “/being in Christ/” while living
in “/the real world/”?
*Join us this summer *in /beautiful/ San Diego as we faithfully quest
together for answers to this and related questions with C.S. Lewis as
Lectures by Leading Lewis Scholars:/*
In the spirit of C.S. Lewis, and aided by insights offered by gifted
speakers from the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences, we
will consider what it really means to understand and live with people of
other beliefs without compromising on what we know to be true.

*/A Narnian Children’s Track:/*
Designed for children ages /7-12/ (age exceptions gladly considered on
an individual basis), this program will offer children a chance to
engage the writings of C.S. Lewis on their own level in imaginative,
creative and faithful ways. Our goal is to provide purposeful fun so
that we might encourage children to enjoy their reading, to find little
life lessons all around them, and to become better followers of Aslan in
their own unique ways.
