The 2018 LFP National Conference: Robust and Receptive Ecumenism

Dates & Time: 
Fri, Oct 12, 2018 - 09:53 am


The 28th Annual LFP National Conference, Robust and Receptive Ecumenism, will take place October 12 through 14, 2018, at Hope College in Holland, Michigan.

The faculty, staff, and students at institutions in church-related higher education are increasingly more ecumenically diverse than the historical or present-day denominational affiliations of colleges and universities might suggest. The intent of robust and receptive ecumenism is to encourage people to speak willingly and openly from their particular Christian perspectives, ask for clarification when others’ ways of speaking need translation, and work at genuine understanding, which might include informed disagreement. Indeed, robust and receptive ecumenism does not assume that everyone must adopt a lowest common denominator stance with respect to differences. Rather, it proposes that, in order for authentic conversation to take place, people must honestly express deeply held views they hold as true.

Speakers include

Lisa DeBoer, Professor of Art, Westmont College, Santa Barbara, California
Steven Harmon, Associate Professor of Historical Theology, Gardner-Webb University, Boiling Springs, North Carolina
Daniel Keating, Professor of Theology, Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Detroit, Michigan
In addition, the Seventh Cohort of Lilly Graduate Fellows, which completed its three-year fellowship in 2017, will attend this year’s National Conference. The Graduate Fellows will attend a Reunion Conference the two days prior to the National Conference.

We look forward to seeing you in Holland!
