As anyone who has been to L’Abri knows, this place can be a hard thing to describe. L’Abri is many things, but at our heart we are a community of people who desire to extend hospitality to those who seek it. What is hospitality exactly, and how can all of us incorporate it more into our families, churches, and communities? If you have ever pondered any of those questions, then come join us on October 24, when we will be hosting a day-long seminar: “Hospitality: A Key to Community”. Feel free to invite friends and come join us for a day of lectures, workshops, discussion, and, of course, food! We look forward to seeing you there! Here is a rundown of what you can expect:
