Kevin Mortimer will present Robert Barclay at the next Hall of Men on May 11, 2017.
Barclay was a seventeenth century Scottish Quaker who followed his father's footsteps by joining the recently formed Society of Friends. He wrote in defense of the Society and penned the Catechism and Confession of Faith (1673). Kevin Mortimer will explore the similarities between Barclay's view of sanctification and the Eastern Christian doctrine of theosis (Mortimer is currently working on his PhD dissertation on this topic).
As usual, doors will open at The Ladder at 7 pm and food will be served around 7:30 pm. At 8:30 pm we'll prepare for the lecture with the Eighth Day Convocation: hymn, patristic and scripture readings, the Nicene Creed, and the Lord's Prayer. Then a great lecture followed by good questions and discussion, good fellowship, and just possibly a few good smoke rings.
We hope to see you at The Hall!
