About the Retreat
You’re invited to join the C.S. Lewis Foundation at the beautiful Camp Allen Conference Center in the piney woods of Navasota, TX, December 3-5 for a weekend of faith, reason, and imagination in the company of friends. Our focus this year will be an exploration of the Psalms, guided by C.S. Lewis’s book Reflections on the Psalms. Through main plenary lectures and a variety of breakout sessions, we will delve into the Psalms from a mix of academic, ministerial, and artistic perspectives.
About the Theme
Numerous world events and phenomena are presently affecting Christianity’s witness to the world. It is all too easy to become distracted from our greater purpose in Christ by narratives of culture war over cultural stewardship, of fear and control over hopeful humility, and of grand political battles over being “salt and light.” That’s why we’ve designed this Retreat to refocus and recenter participants on the deeper things in our Christian walk – particularly love, hope, joy, and even proper lamentations in a time when there is much fear, anger, grief, and uncertainty in the world – precisely as we see God’s faithful doing and modeling for us in the Psalms.
About the Foundation
At the C.S. Lewis Foundation, we believe that Christians are called to engage, influence, and steward the worldly culture around us. We believe that we are called to work towards redeeming culture and helping to build the Kingdom through participation, hospitality, and witness. As an organization, we focus on encouraging and equipping Christians for such work in their own lives. To do this, following the example set by C.S. Lewis through his personal life, professional activities, and published works, our programs integrate “faith, reason, and imagination in the company of friends,” equipping the faithful to return to their homes and contexts as agents of change, impacting their worlds for Christ
