Rochester L'Abri Conference – 2014:
When: February 14th & 15th, 2014
Where: The Kahler Grand Hotel, Rochester, MN
What: "To Walk Humbly with your God: True Spirituality in an Age of Counterfeits"
The publication of Bill Edgar's wonderful book on Francis Schaeffer's spirituality has coincided with many of us in L'Abri revisiting True Spirituality. In terms of Dr. Schaeffer's rather substantial legacy, this is an area often overlooked. I hope our conference will help set that straight. We are aiming at a conference that explores Schaeffer's approach to Spirituality, especially in contrast to the surrounding culture, both in and out of the Church. The vogue for 'Spirituality rather than Religion' all too often leads to a 'Spirituality-without-God' outside the Church and a 'Spirituality-without-the-Cross' within the Church. I hope we can point to the Biblical reality of a Spirituality rooted in the Grace of the Living God.

What is a L'Abri Conference?
L'Abri is the French word for shelter. The L'Abri ministry was founded by Francis and Edith Schaeffer in 1955 to provide an environment where Christians and non-Christians could seek answers to questions about God and truth. Following in that tradition, a L'Abri Conference is an opportunity through lectures, discussions, and personal interaction, to feed and hone the mind in an effort to deepen one's understanding of what it means to be a Christian in our society. The on-campus housing and mealtimes are designed to facilitate an exchange of ideas among conferees and speakers.
