Rob Bell will join Oprah Winfrey this fall on an eight-city tour scheduled to include a stop at The Palace of Auburn Hills near Detroit.
Bell, the former Mars Hill church pastor in Grandville, is among the “handpicked thought leaders and pop culture icons” slated to participate, according to a news release. The other guests already announced: Deepak Chopra, “Eat Pray Love” author Elizabeth Gilbert and Iyanla Vanzant, whose “Iyanla Fix My Life” show airs on Winfrey’s TV network.
Tickets for “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend” start at $99 and go on sale here April 7. The Detroit stop is Sept. 12-13. The tour will kick off the previous weekend in Atlanta and also visit Houston, Miami, Newark, N.J., San Jose, Calif., Seattle and Washington, D.C.
“All of my life I have wanted to lead people to an empathy space, to a gratitude space,” Winfrey said in a prepared statement. “I want us all to fulfill our greatest potential, to find our calling and summon the courage to live it.”
