The Theology of Love & Worship

Reflections in light of Lewis


Mini Linlathen Retreat for clergy, chaplains, and ministry folk.

Dr. Jason Lepojärvi of Oxford University & Regent College

is our Guest Speaker this year, for a small and intimate retreat specifically for those in ministry:  Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon (with a break for those who have Sunday morning commitments), June 23 – 25th.  


                   Dr. Lepojärvi is both an Inklings scholar and a                                theologian, and during this retreat C.S. Lewis’                                theology of Love will be the backdrop as he leads an                      exploration of Love (the different types; their                                  common denominator; how Love engages with the                        other virtues) and Worship (understanding the                              substantive differences between adoration,                                      veneration, and idolatry; apprehending what is cognitive, emotive, volitive, physical, ethical, sacrificial, etc). Interdenominational perspectives will be brought into dialogue with one another, and practical applications considered.

Conferees with no commitments on Sunday morning are welcome to join worship at Hillside Reform Presbyterian (Almonte), at the same location as the annual Linlathen public lecture on Thursday evening June 22nd:

Female Friendships of C.S. Lewis & J.R.R. Tolkien.

Revd. Matt Dyck, a long-time Inklings enthusiast, will lead the Psalmodic worship in a 10am Sunday service, complementing the conference theme.
