‘L’Abri’ means ‘shelter’, a place where believers and non-believers alike can join others for a period of time to thrash out their understanding of how the God of the Bible relates to the real world that we live in. Many people get confused about the nature of L’Abri simply because it seems odd to go to a retreat centre in order to make sense of the world. Isn’t that just a neat excuse for escapism?
