  • City Church event.
  • Downtown, specific location TBD.
  • Sundays, October 8-29.
  • 1:00-2:30p.

Please join us for discussion of Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer’s book How Should We Then Live? Sundays after the 11:00 service in October. Schaeffer, a man who cared deeply about people and their search for truth, meaning, and beauty, believed that if we are to answer the question posed in his title, we have to understand the cultural and intellectual forces that inform us. Although this book was written in the mid-70s as he and other leaders were attempting to sort through the cultural upheaval of the 60s and its implications for the church and Western culture, we today have much to glean from insights.

Reading How Should We Then Live? had a profound effect on the way I understand the extraordinary role of artists through history. All the art history classes I took for my BFA didn’t come close to providing the insights and wisdom spelled out by Francis Schaeffer in this book.
As an artist who is called to Christ, I find this classic book to be an incredible resource and inspiration! -Beth Williams, Artist and City Church member
