Institute for Faith and Learning to Host Speaker

The LRU Institute for Faith and Learning will host speaker Mark Yaconelli who will present "Wonder, Fear, and Longing: The Life of the Soul." Using story and humor, and drawing on his work in Christian spiritual formation, Yaconelli will discuss how our everyday experience invites us into greater freedom and transparency with God, others, and ourselves.
