Subject: Summer Study at C.S. Lewis' Home in Oxford!
Date: Fri, 30 Mar 2007 22:43:59 -0400
The time has come! This summer offers a rare chance for you to spend one
week at the Kilns, the beloved home of C.S. Lewis in Oxford, England!
It is your chance, not only to live in the same charming brick cottage
where C.S. Lewis lived for most of his adult life, but also to:
· …*dine* in style on exquisitely prepared dishes in the inviting
dining room at the Kilns; take afternoon tea on the lawn beneath
blossoming fruit trees; and find the perfect Cornish pasty at a medieval
inn around Oxford;
· …*experience* the key locations of Lewis’ conversion story,
including Addison’s Walk and the Whipsnade Zoo;
· …*g**ro**w* in your own spiritual journey through lectures,
discussion and reflection in the peaceful setting of the Kilns and
around England; and .
· …*share* this adventure among new friends eager to engage the
times with a vibrant living faith.
You’ll find all this and more as part of Weeks I, II, & III of the
*Summer Seminars-in-Residence at the Kilns*,
July 7 – August 3, 2007.
Here’s just a sampling of how past seminar participants have
characterized their experience:
/“A five star treat of love and beauty. I loved staying at The Kilns and
hearing it all. It was a dream come true for me --because Lewis has
been such a close mentor for me for so many years! Thank you!”/
/Great staff, wonderful experience! The fact that only seven others were
participating lent a very personal touch that no price tag can assess.
I recommend this seminar to everyone.”/
There’s not much time left and even fewer spaces, so we encourage you to
act now to experience this unique opportunity!
Weeks I & II with *Dr.* *Malcolm Guite* of Cambridge are almost full.
*Late breaking news!* We have only just now opened Week III, July 28 –
August 1, with Seminar favorite *Dr. Jerry Root *of Wheaton College,
entitled “*C.S. Lewis: Man of Reason and Imagination.**”*

For those with a love for the writings of C.S. Lewis and a passion for
communicating a living faith to the world, the careful study, loving
fellowship and rich worship of these weeks are not to be missed. We
sincerely hope to see you in Oxford!
Yours for the journey,
