Living Amid the Principalities: Pro Ecclesia Annual Conference for Clergy and Laity

Brueghel-tower-of-babelThe Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology are sponsoring the 2014 Pro Ecclesia Annual Conference for Clergy and Laity. It will be held at Loyola University, Baltimore, Maryland between 9–14 June.

The promo reads:

“We are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness.” So Paul warns his Ephesian readers to put on the “whole armor of God” and be ready for struggle with the world. And yet Paul also says that these principalities and powers were created in and for Christ (Col. 1:16), have now been disarmed (Col 2:15), and cannot separate us from the love of God (Rom 8:38). What are the principalities and powers of our time in politics, technology, culture, economy, and religion? How do we understand them as created, fallen, and disarmed? How does the Christian today engage these powers? The 2014 conference of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology will take up this theme. Presentations will represent a variety of traditions: Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant.

Further details are promised in due course here. In the meantime, queries can be directed towards Michael Root.

It sounds like a great conference, and a great opportunity too to do some work with dear Uncle Stringfellow, among others.
