Portland Regional Convivium
January 5 @ 8:00 am - 6:30 pmFree - $25
The Davenant Institute will host its fourth Pacific Northwest Regional Convivium Irenicum this winter in Portland, OR on January 5th and 6th, concurrent with the Society of Christian Ethics gathering in the same city. Co-hosted with Western Seminary, the event will begin with a plenary lecture, “Free to Serve: The Meaning and Task of Christian Citizenship” by Davenant President Dr. Bradford Littlejohn, with a panel of respondents and plenty of time for Q&A.
It will continue at a private residence all-day Saturday with paper presentations, discussions, and plenty of conviviality. To propose a paper topic or discussion topic, email Timothy Harmon at email@example.com. Note that no theme is being specified in advance for these Saturday papers, so feel free to present any recent work or work-in-progress on which you would like to stimulate discussion and receive feedback.
If you are coming from out of town and need a place to stay for the night, also notify Timothy Harmon and we will see what can be provided.
Convivia Irenica are opportunites for ecclesially-minded scholars, academically-minded pastors, and theologically-concerned laypeople to come together and build bonds of friendship and collaboration for the advancement of Protestant wisdom.
