Glendale to Co-Host "A Weekend with Brian McLaren" October 23-25
Author, speaker, and activist Brian McLaren will speak at Second Presbyterian Church about his latest book We Make the Road by Walking, which offers spiritual seekers, ex-Christians, and long-time Christians from diverse backgrounds a common understanding of what it means to follow Christ. The weekend will include lectures, discussions, and worship in sessions on Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday, October 23-25.
McLaren is considered one of the most prominent Christian leaders in America and was recognized by Time Magazine as one of the 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America in 2005. He is a popular speaker for campus groups, seminaries, and clergy and leadership conferences, nationally and internationally. His books and lectures cover a wide range of topics including the gospel and global crises; theology and postmodernity; liturgy, preaching and spiritual formation; evangelism and inter-religious dialogue; and faith and social justice.
