“L’Abri is French for “the shelter.” The L’Abri ministry was founded by Francis and Edith Schaeffer in 1955 to provide a hospitable environment for any person seeking honest answers to honest questions about God and truth. Following in that tradition, a L’Abri Conference provides an opportunity through lectures, discussions, and personal interaction to deepen understanding of what it means to be fully human in light of the transformative truth of Christianity. Each lecture, workshop, mealtime, and discussion is designed to facilitate an exchange of ideas among conference attendees and speakers.”
“The Inklings was a literary discussion group that met between the 1930s and the 1950s. C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the other writers would meet weekly at a pub in Oxford, England called the Eagle and the Child. Many of the famous works of literature we know them for today were a result of these friends reading and critiquing each other’s early manuscripts.
Our Square Halo Conference is inspired by this robust fellowship. Our time together will reflect on their creativity, collaboration, and community, while also providing creative and collaborative experiences throughout the event.

Bonnie Bosso, director for Servant Stage and Lancaster Academy for the Performing Arts, as well as Theatre Production & Public Relations Manager for Franklin & Marshall College
