All invited to Friday’s honors lecture featuring author Gabe Lyons

Monday, September 24th, 2018

The William Penn Honors Program invites the university community to a free lecture, “Faithfulness in the Age of Distraction,” at 7:30 p.m. this Friday, Sept. 28, in Bauman Auditorium. Presenting will be Gabe Lyons, coauthor of Good Faith (2016), unChristian (2007) and the author of The Next Christians (2010), a manifesto for how Christians can faithfully lead in a changing culture.

Lyons’ presentation will address our scattered, frantic day-to-day lives: the too-tight schedules, the looming deadlines, the constant technological buzz – everything that has become a barrier to our relationship with God and others. You’ll come away with new tools and a refreshed perspective on what it takes to live out the gospel in our modern world.

Lyons is the founder of Q, a learning community of Christian leaders where they are equipped to engage our cultural moment.
