    "What's He Building in There?" : The Music of Tom Waits.



    Tom Waits has been making original music since the late 1960s and has many devoted followers. Very little is known about him personally, but his songs are rich, complex, funny and disturbing. While his music is at times a challenge both lyrically and sonically, there is much to appreciate about his writing and musicianship. In this talk we will explore some of Waits' music and ask the question - do we make room in the kingdom of God for the eccentric and the strange?

    "Let them see the farm, and let them see faith!" : Reflections on Christianity from those who work on and with the land.



    Within this lecture we will cultivate a richer understanding of rural agricultural Christianity, engaging with the deeply grounded faith that comes from working close to the earth. There is much to learn about who God is and how faith relates to daily life when we leave urban areas and enter into places where one's business, personal spirituality, community connection, environmental care, and family lifestyle are all bound tightly into a holistic definition of sustainability.

    Esther Dalton


    "Fellow Passengers to the Grave" : Learning Love of Neighbor with Charles Dickens



    What does the Good Samaritan have to do with a prolific and sometimes preachy Victorian novelist? This lecture will explore this question by looking at how reading Dickens' stories can help us think in fresh, and perhaps deeper, ways about what loving our neighbors as ourselves looks like in real life.

    The Apostle Paul, a Friend to the Poor?


    It is not uncommon to hear that while Jesus cares for the poor and the least, Paul only cares about the pagan and the lost. Many readings of Paul seem to make his theological preoccupations center, and any concern for the poor marginal. This lecture will take another look at the Apostle Paul to see how his letters evidence a ministry of deep and abiding concern for the least.

    Am I Following Jesus on Purpose, Or Just Riding My Parent's Coat Tails?


    Question your faith down to its foundation. Even deconstruct it. But live in a state of demolition? In this lecture, we will reflect on what it means to grow up in a Christian home, explore how to take doubts and questions seriously, and gather some tools to help reconstruct a more mature (and maturing) life of faith.


    Optional pre-lecture reading - After Doubt: How to Question Your Faith Without Losing It, by A.J. Swoboda.

    The Gift Comes First: The Essential Chronology of the Gospel.


    Christianity is a religion of grace, but what does this mean? In this lecture we will examine the ways in which the Christian life is a response to a gift already given - an invitation to 'strive from approval.' Why is it difficult to grasp this central belief? What are the implications of this for how we live?

Long live L’Abri!

I don’t know what I would do without L’Abri. I wish I could live in this community, but the next best thing is to be able to listen to this wealth of ideas on the podcast. They remind me of all that is good and beautiful and true, the old stories and fairy tales and poetry that our culture so desperately needs. The modern American church would benefit so much from emulating their model of Christian fellowship and discipleship and their care of the life of the mind.

Excellent.

These lectures are thought-provoking, informative, intelligent, and worth the time investment. Not the average evangelical flavor you'd get on Christian television or radio. Give L'Abri a try.

I Love L’Abri Lectures!

They’re great! Just subscribed so I can listen to the lectures when I can’t attend in person.
