The Conference on Faith and History is meeting this week at George Fox University in Newberg, OR. The undergraduate conference, which was the brainchild of my good friend and co-editor Jay Green who first introduced it in 2002, can be found here. The professional program can be found here.
I could not make it to the conference this year due to a schedule conflict, but rumor has it that the Northwestern Junto is out in force, represented by Adina Johnson, Thomas Carlson, and their fearless leader Jonathan Den Hartog. I have also heard some rumblings that the “Philip-ians” might be there as well, but I could be wrong about that.
On Saturday morning an entire session will be devoted to Confessing History: Explorations in Christian Faith and the Historian’s Vocation. My co-editors, Jay Green and Eric Miller, will be giving papers about the book and Rick Kennedy and Don Yerxa will be responding.
I know it is a bit late for this, but I would love to post periodic updates from the conference. If any of you are reading this in Oregon and are interested in being a correspondent for The Way of Improvement Leads Home, shoot me an e-mail at jfea(at)messiah(dot)edu I am interested in a post or posts about the conference in general (both student and professional), individual panels, the Confessing History panel, gossip, the venue, etc…
