Exploring Faith and Reason: Orthodox Christians in the American Academy Today – September 16, 2011

Calling all Orthodox Christian faculty from colleges and universities across New England! If you are interested in discussing how your Orthodox Christian faith is connected to your work as a professor or researcher, then please join us for the first regional meeting of the Orthodox Scholars’ Initiative at Hellenic College. Teaching in the academy is a unique vocation in the Orthodox Church, and you’re invited to come explore ways in which your faith and reason intersect. The afternoon program runs concurrent with the annual meeting of the Orthodox Theological Society in America.
