Saunders Center For Joy

Abilene Christian University’s Brown Library has announced that it will house the Landon Saunders Center for Joy and Human Flourishing.

The Center’s mission, aligned with Landon’s vision — is to foster ongoing conversation and reflection on the primacy of joy.

“Frederick Buechner once said that losing someone is like your house burning down, it takes years to realize all that you have lost. I think that’s how it is with Landon. It’s not uncommon in the course of my day to have a thought and then realize that it was Landon who gave the idea to me 30+ years ago.”   — Larry Nelson
