Saturday, August 18th | 10 AM to 5 PM St. Francis College, Brooklyn, New York
On Saturday, August 18th, scholars and leaders of the Christian traditions in North America and India will gather together to discuss and reflect on the concepts of church tradition, unity, and division in the history of Indian Christianity. It will be a day of community building as well as sharing possible contributions for digital and print publications.
The morning session is accepting proposals for presentations on the various Churches and Christian traditions in India, while in the afternoon, we are accepting academic paper proposals for issues of ecumenism amongst the Churches of India and the Anglican Communion. Morning presentations will be considered for publication on a new open source platform christiantradition.org and afternoon paper presentations will be considered for publication in a forthcoming book on Ecumenism, Anglicanism, and the Churches of India.
As a result of the gathering, we hope to provide popular and scholarly resources on the Churches of India, their history, and their ecumenical relations. We also plan to use this as an opportunity of relationship building and planning for future work together, including a larger ecumenical conference in the Spring of 2019.
Facilitator: The Rev. Dr. J. Jayakiran Sebastian, dean and the H. George Anderson Professor of Mission and Cultures at the United Lutheran Seminary, Philadelphia.
Other leaders and guest respondents will be announced in the coming weeks.
For questions or more information, contact the Rev. Dr. Mary Julia Jett at firstname.lastname@example.org. A schedule, registration details, and more information will be available in the coming weeks.
The event is sponsored, in part, by the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at St. Francis College.
