ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Brian D. McLaren, a former pastor and now author, speaker, and activist shows how old assumptions are being challenged in nearly every area of human life, not just theology and spirituality. McLaren proposes a four-stage model of faith development in which questions and doubt are not the enemy of faith, but rather a portal to a more mature and fruitful kind of faith. This new path forward can help sincere and thoughtful people leave behind unnecessary baggage and intensify their commitment to what matters most.
Brian McLaren’s visit is presented by The Front Porch: a Spiritual Life Center. The Front Porch welcomes people along all paths who seek to deepen their spiritual lives. We offer contemplative practices, events, and classes rooted in Christian spirituality.
