The Lewis House


The Lewis House

What’s going on at the Lewis House this summer?

The Picture of Dorian Gray Book Group
Very few things engage our moral imagination quite like good fiction books. They communicate virtues and vices in a way that just sticks. Philosopher James K. A. Smith gives a hint as to why: “We are narrative animals. [Our] very orientation to the world is fundamentally shaped by stories.” So join us as we are swept into the story of Dorian Gray, a young man who sells his soul for the promise of eternal youth. Although not a Christian book, this literary classic has much to say on the true nature of beauty, evil, and a life well lived.

Meeting dates:
July 9th, 5pm-6pm (discuss chapters 1-4)
July 23rd, 5pm-6pm (discuss chapters 5-9)
July 30th, 5pm-6pm (discuss chapters 10-14)
August 6th, 5pm-6pm (discuss chapters 14-20)

This book group is free and open to the general public. We have extra copies of The Picture of Dorian Gray for sale for $5 at the bookstore!

“Tea”-ology | Saturday, July 27th, 10am-11:30am
Talking theology is fun enough on its own, but it’s extra fun with tea and scones in hand. Join us Saturday, July 27th as our very own scholar-in-residence, Dr. Derek King, hosts a theology Q & A. If you want to drink tea, eat tasty treats, and expand your theologian horizons, this is the event for you. “Tea”-ology is free and open to the public, but we ask that you pre-register ahead of time to ensure we have enough food.

We’ll collect questions beforehand, so if you have a theology related question for Dr. King, you can submit it here.
