On Tuesday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m., we will be discussing our last chapter, chapter 3, of "The Abolition of Man" by C.S. Lewis.

Although it has been a very challenging read, it has also been very poignant and informative in its description of the "pressing educational need" of our time. Join us as we fellowship, learn and participate in the great conversation.

*Water, coffee & dessert will be provided.
