Dr. Louis Markos October 29-31: St. Mark’s Shreveport

Wonderful and Interesting Lecture by Dr. Markos. A prelude to our visit with him Oct. 29-31

On the weekend of October 29-31, St. Mark’s-Shreveport, will be welcoming Dr. Louis Markos as a guest lecturer on the work of CS Lewis, focusing primarily on “Mere Christianity.” This work by Lewis has become one of the most read books about what lay at the beginning of the Christian journey for many believers. It has lead many to faith, and opened the works of Lewis to many as companions on life’s journey. I was introduced to Lou’s work through The Teaching Company – https://www.thegreatcourses.com/courses/life-and-writings-of-c-s-lewis

Throughout my own journey of growing in Christian faith, I have returned many times to the life and work of CS Lewis for inspiration and refreshment; rekindling an old friendship with the author of “The Chronicles of Narnia” which I read as a child, and which opened my heart and my mind to a new conversation with God and others about the good and kind Carpenter, Jesus Christ.

Regardless of where you might be in your journey of faith, I hope that you will join us at St. Marks for the lectures below; all are welcome. If you are joining us for lunch on Sunday – please call the Cathedral office and let us know ahead of time, or email: bess@stmarkscathedral.net.
