This networking event featuring a talk by author, lecturer and journalist, Os Guinness, will be followed by small group interaction and Q & A with the speaker.
Os Guinness is an author, lecturer, journalist and social critic. Great-great-great grandson of Arthur Guinness, the Dublin brewer, he was born in China in World War Two where his parents were medical missionaries.
Present during the climax of the Chinese revolution in 1949, Os witnessed over 5 million people dying or being killed, including his two brothers. He and his parents were expelled with many other foreigners in 1951 and returned to Europe where he was educated in England.
For many years after his experience in China, Os struggled and searched for answers for what happened to his family and others, examining many other religions and belief systems before returning to his Christian roots.
Os has written or edited more than thirty books, including, The Call, Time for Truth, Long Journey Home, Unspeakable, A Free People's Suicide, The Global Public Square, and Renaissance.
Before moving to the United States, Os was a freelance reporter with the BBC. Os is a former visiting fellow at the Brookings Institute and is currently a senior fellow at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics in Oxford, England.
