I hope to see you this summer at the Florovsky Week!
On October 31st, 1517 Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg. The rest is history. Today there are six different churches in a quarter-mile square neighborhood. Lutherans come in various stripes, as do Baptists and Presbyterians, not to mention the many independent and non-denominational churches. And yet, Jesus prayed “that they may be one” (Jn 17:21). Is there any hope for us to be one? Has the Reformation left an indelible schism within the Church? Will we only have unity in heaven and not on earth? These are the questions that the first, annual Eighth Day Institute Florovsky Week seeks to address. Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox perspectives on the question of “Justification by Faith Alone” will fill the evening lectures as well as the Saturday program. Hans Boersma, Kenneth Howell, and Bradley Nassif will offer these lectures. The afternoon papers from local professors, pastors, and arm-chair theologians will address various topics related to the Reformation. Plus there will be an iconography workshop on Tue-Fri. Join us July 10-14, 2018. The whole Florovsky Week is a bargain: $95! Or, come for a day: Tuesday’s banquet is $35, Wed-Fri is $15 each, and Saturday is $35. The iconography workshop is a separate event for $300. All events are at Newman University, except Saturday, which is at St. George Orthodox Cathedral.
