Lewis House Groups

“When one has read a book, I think there is nothing so nice as discussing it with some one else—even though it sometimes produces rather fierce arguments.” 

– C. S. Lewis, in a letter to Arthur Greeves


Why Join a Group?

Lewis House groups are designed to gather inquiring minds around good ideas (and often a good meal or some coffee).

We want to help folks grow in knowledge, wisdom, virtue, and faith. But this kind of growth happens best—maybe happens only—with others, learning from and with them. Kentucky poet, philosopher, and farmer Wendell Berry wisely observed, “It is not from ourselves that we learn to be better than we are.” And so we gather together in these groups, hoping to learn from one another as we seek after truth and goodness together; but also hoping to learn from the wisdom of the thinkers—both ancient and new—whose ideas we discuss and gather around. These voices outside of our own help to sharpen our own thinking and push us further toward real knowledge and wisdom.

So come, join us. Let us reason (and hang out) together.
