Lunch with C. S. Lewis

St. Alban's Chapel offers a free lunch for undergraduate and graduate students every Wednesday (11:30 - 12:20).   Following a fantastic catered lunch served by members of the St. Alban's congregation, Fr. Drew Rollins (Chaplain) presents a short teaching on 'mere Christianity', a term coined by C.S. Lewis to describe those beliefs which Christians through the ages have held in common.  Students always participate in a lively back and forth with Fr. Drew.

These Wednesday lunches serve as many as 250 students, and the occasional child, in just under half an hour. Then, Drew or a guest speaker talks for 20 minutes. Cleanup begins around a scattering of students who linger to talk. Some students assist in the cleanup. It seems a simple thing when reduced to words on paper, but the C. S. Lewis luncheons are a gathering of church and university family that must be experienced to be appreciated.
