The L'Abri communities are study centers in Europe, Asia and America where individuals have the opportunity to seek answers to honest questions about God and the significance of human life based on the belief that Christianity speaks to all aspects of life. The first L'Abri community was founded in Switzerland in 1955 by Dr. Francis Schaeffer and his wife, Edith. Dr. Schaeffer was a Christian theologian and philosopher who also authored a number of books on theology, philosophy, general culture and the arts. Dr. Schaeffer's letters are featured on this website in the Murry Reading Room.

At a time when many Christian artists were busy moving to Nashville or Hollywood, Rich walked away from his own growing success as a singer/songwriter to teach on a Navajo Nation reservation in New Mexico.
