This fall, come to the woodland retreat of Camp Allen in Navasota, Texas,

*C.S. Lewis Southwest Regional Retreat
The Company We Keep: Creativity & Community with C.S. Lewis & the Inklings
* *October 30 - November 1, 2009*
From the 1930s to the 1940s, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and their
friends and fellow writers met to share good fellowship and their creative
works-in-progress. Known as the "Inklings," they produced some of the most
beloved works of the 20th century.
Join *Diana Pavlac Glyer*, author of *The Company They Keep: C.S. Lewis &
J.R.R. Tolkien as Writers in Community*, as she invites us to explore the
Inkling's friendship and the influence it had on their lives. She will
encourage us to respond to God's call to community and discover that we are
refreshed and inspired as we connect with others.

Glyer, Rev. Skip Ryan, George Musacchio, Andrew Lazo, Don Wood, and Rev.
- *Inspirational music and dance performances* - Kemper Crabb and Ad Deum
