Ancient Wisdom-Anglican Futures

Trinity School for Ministry will be hosting “Ancient Wisdom – Anglican Futures: An Emerging Conversation,” a 2 ½ day, international conference dealing with Anglicanism’s place in the “Great Tradition” of Christianity.  From June 4th through 6th, the conference is set up so that each session will have keynote speakers (“teachers”), who are in turn questioned by “missioners” who are doing grass-roots Anglican ministry in a variety of contexts.  The “teachers” include both Anglicans (“insiders”) and “outsiders” (non-Anglicans, observing the Anglican tradition).  These outsiders include representatives from a wide variety of traditions, from the Assemblies of God to Orthodox Christianity.  Sessions include “Worshiping in the Great Tradition,” “Community in the Great Tradition,” and “Mission in the Great Tradition.”

Teachers include David Neff (Christianity Today), Jason Clark (Emergent UK), Holly Rankin Zaher (Student Ministry, St. George’s, Nashville), D.H. Williams (Baylor), Tony Clark (Friends University), Edith Humphrey (Pittsburgh Theological Seminary), Simon Chan (Trinity College, Singapore), George Sumner (Wycliffe College, Toronto), Stephen Long (Marquette), Andrew Walkers (Kings College, London), and Samuel Wells (Dean of the Chapel, Duke University).

The conference cost is $100 ($50/students) and registration can be submitted online via the Online Registration Form.
