Andy Crouch’s new book, The Life We’re Looking For: Reclaiming Relationship in a Technological World (Convergent, 2022) paints a vivid picture of how we’ve been deceived by a false vision of human flourishing as we live enthralled with the ever-evolving technologies flooding the marketplace. But more than just diagnosing our existential crisis; he offers a compelling vision for strengthening our individual and communal capacity for love and service. He does this by gleaning lessons from the Christian movement’s early social innovations and its core appreciation of the value of each person.

We will discuss this book two weeks after the October 11 Andy Crouch event at Upper House. Whether you participated in that event and received the book then, or simply have the book on hand and wish to discuss it, you are welcome to attend. John Terrill will facilitate the discussion so that whatever your role in life—leader, professor, parent, student, or pastor—our conversation will be enriching.

Please join us as we engage contemporary experience with Christian wisdom—for our own wellbeing, as well as our family’s and community’s.

Resource

Bring your own copy of the The Life We’re Looking For: Reclaiming Relationship in a Technological World (Convergent, 2022) to this gathering. You might also purchase an ebook for around $10.
