Philip Yancey at Trinity Western University


We launched a cross-Canada tour with acclaimed Christian author Philip Yancey in February, 2020. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we only made it to British Columbia. 

We hope that we will be able to resume the tour one day. For now, check out this talk that Philip gave to the students at Trinity Western University in Langley, British Columbia about what it means to be made in God’s image. Drawing on his time getting to know and love people affected by leprosy, Philip Yancey explains how we are all fearfully and wonderfully made in God’s own image. 

Through touching and entertaining stories and anecdotes, Yancey illustrates that regardless of a person’s circumstances– how much money they have, where they live, what they look like, or if they have been deeply wounded by a disease– every one of us has gifts and has great value. 

Yancey’s connection and love for people affected by leprosy are deep. From the beginning of his career as an author, he has spent a lot of timing getting to know people living with the effects of the disease. He has chronicled the life of pioneering leprosy surgeon Dr. Paul Brand and his service to people affected by leprosy. He has documented the stories and lives of countless individuals who have lived with leprosy.

We hope you enjoy this!
