A blog on the topic "Heaven, Hell, . . . and Purgatory?" has been set up by the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology in connection with the Pro Ecclesia conference on that theme June 10-12 in Baltimore.  Comments, bibiographies, etc., will appear between now and the conference.  The blog is open to all, whether or not you are attending the conference!

More on the conference at:
Information and registration for the annual conference of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology is now available at the Center's website – and at  After addressing the significance of ethical controversies in the churches last year, this year we are turning to what is always fundamental, Jesus.  The theme is "Who Do You Say That I Am? Proclaiming and Following Jesus Today."  Among the speakers are Carl Braaten, Daniel Bell, Fleming Rutledge, Joseph Bottum, and Kathryn Greene-McCreight.  As before, the conference will be held at Loyola University Maryland, in Baltimore.  It will begin at 7 PM on Tuesday, June 14, and end at noon on Thursday, June 16.  If you have any questions, feel free to write me at  Note in particular the steeply discounted student price.
I hope to see some of you there.

Your Turn / New blog, FWIW
August 27, 2009, 08:32:28 PM
FWIW, I have started a blog of my own to discuss the present ELCA situation.  I will probably do most of the writing for a while, but David Yeago and a few others might be contributing.  You can find it at:
It will be technogically crude for a while, until I can figure out how to do things with the wordpress system.
