CCET: Vatican II's Continuing Challenge

Hat tip to my friend Dwight P. at Versus Populum, who breaks the news that the next conference of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology is Vatican II: Its continuing Challenge to All Churches, June 8-10, 2009, at the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington, D. C. "Speakers will discuss the continuing significance of the Council for such issues in Church life as ethics, worship, ecclesiology (I can't wait!), ecumenism, and others," he writes.

The keynoter is Prof. George Lindbeck, Professor Emeritus of Historical Theology at Yale Divinity School, who was an official Lutheran World Federation observer at all four sessions of the Secoond Vatican Council.

Other presenters include
  • Amy Laura Hall, Duke Divinity School
  • Paul Gavrilyuk, University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn.
  • Nicholas Healy, St. John's University, Queens, N. Y.
  • Matthew Levering, Ave Maria University, near Naples, Fla.
  • Karen Tucker, Boston University, and
  • Michael Root from Southern Seminary and CCET's Exec. Director.

    The CCET Conference has been a must on my calendar since my first one in 1994 and it is one of those places where serious theologians (especially some younger ones) and parish pastors meet. Like Dwight, I can't wait.
