Peace Lutheran Church in Gahanna will host author and writer Brian McLaren on Sunday, September 9 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Designated by Time magazine as one of the top 50 thought leaders, Brian McLaren is an author, writer, and prolific speaker about the changing church in a changing world. He has keen insight into the cultural waters we swim in and how they reflect and/or don’t reflect Jesus’ hope for our world.

His presentation, “Changing the Cultural Narrative: Is the Church helping or hurting?” will be held on Sunday, September 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Peace, located at 455 Clark State Road in Gahanna.

McLaren will preach at all services at Peace that day on “Changing the Narrative: Moving from a Set of Beliefs to a Way of Life”, and then speak on the theme named above in the evening. To register, visit
