Os Guinness at SLPC

The Apostle Peter wrote about the church that we are “...a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Peter 1:9)  Peter’s words, in the early years of the 21st century, provoke this question: How do we best live out our faith during a time of confusion, emptiness and distraction?  To help us contemplate a response, Os Guinness, author and social critic, has agreed to come to SLPC for a weekend of music, seminars, fellowship and preaching.

Great-great-great grandson of Arthur Guinness, the Dublin brewer, Os was born in China in World War II where his parents were medical missionaries. A witness to the climax of the Chinese revolution in 1949, he was expelled with many other foreigners in 1951 and returned to Europe where he was educated in England. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of London and his D.Phil in the social sciences from Oriel College, Oxford.  Os has written or edited more than 30 books, including The Call, Time for Truth, Unspeakable, The American Hour, A Free People’s Suicide, and The Global Public Square.  He is currently  completing a book, Last Call for Liberty, on the crisis of the United States today.

Os has spoken at dozens of the world’s major universities, and spoken widely to political and business conferences on many issues, including religious freedom, across the world. He lives with his wife Jenny in the Washington, D.C. area.

Here is what we have planned:

  • Saturday, October 20 - Morning Seminars (9:00 a.m. - Noon) with Os Guinness
  • Evening Concert with Young Oceans and Talk from Os Guinness
  • Sunday, October 21 - Os Guinness preaching, followed by a special Coffee Cafe

Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people . . . 1 Peter 1:10
