The Christians for Liberty Conference is just one week away!
First, as many of you know I promised that for those who wanted to come early and stay late we would have some optional fun events for you on Friday night and Sunday afternoon. We previously had announced a Friday night panel discussion and ice cream social and we hope all of you will have a chance to join us. Now I want to invite you to a Sunday afternoon devotional and open discussion for all attendees! Our “theme” for the discussion will be “frontiers of research and activism for Christian libertarianism”, but we welcome any of those tough questions you’ve been dying to ask. I wanted to build as much quality fellowship time into this conference as I could, and this will be a great opportunity for worshiping together and for thinking about what we are going to do with what we learned over the weekend after we get home. Like Friday night, the event will be held in the University Avenue Church of Christ Campus Center, and we will begin at 1:30 p.m. and end… whenever we get kicked out of the building!
Second, we are thrilled to welcome the Acton Institute as a sponsor of the conference and Ray Nothstine as a speaker! Ray is the Managing Editor of Acton’s Religion & Liberty journal. In 2005, Ray graduated with a Master of Divinity (M.Div) degree from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Ky. He also holds a B.A. in Political Science from The University of Mississippi in Oxford. Before coming to Acton, Ray worked as a free-lance writer for several organizations, including the Institute on Religion and Democracy. He gained ministry experience in churches in Mississippi and Kentucky. After college, he also served on the staff of U.S. Congressman Gene Taylor (D-Miss) in Gulfport in 2001-02. The son of a retired Air Force pilot, Ray has also lived in Okinawa, Philadelphia, New England, Hawaii, and Egypt.
