Where I wish I had been today (though it was good to finally have a day off) -- the Inaugural (first ever) New England Anglican Studies Conference (or as I like to call it, AngliCon ; - )), hosted by the Episcopal/Anglican Fellowship, at Harvard Divinity School.
My colleague Rev. Cameron Partridge worked very hard organizing it, and presented at it.
"The topic for the conference is “The Open Body: Anglicans Dwelling In, With, and Outside Tradition.” Highlights include a keynote address by Harvard’s R.R. Niebuhr Professor of Divinity Mark Jordan, breakout sessions on Retrieving Mystical Theology, Re-imagining Self and Other, Revising Communion, and Re-embodying Church, and a panel discussion on religion and politics with Bishop M. Thomas Shaw, President and Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School Katherine Ragsdale, and EDS Professor Susanna Snyder. A closing eucharist will be presided over by Massachusetts Bishop M. Thomas Shaw.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference!"
