Kevin Wilson has posted the announcement for this year’s meeting of the AABS. This year I will be able to make it so I hope to see some of you there!
The Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars announces their annual meeting, which will be held on November 16 at the San Diego Convention Center.
We are honored to have as our speaker the Rev. Lynn C. Sanders, Director of Church Relations for Episcopal Relief and Development. The afternoon sessions will focus on the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals and ways the MDGs can be explored in parishes in conjunction with biblical texts. After eucharist and dinner, our evening session will feature a talk by Ms. Sanders on “The AABS and ERD: Partners for Theologically Grounded Development Education for Churches?”
The meetings are open to everyone regardless of denominational affiliation. There are no requirements for membership other than an interest in biblical studies. There is no fee for the sessions, although those who attend are encouraged to join the AABS if they would like to help us foster biblical scholarship in the Anglican Communion. If you want to attend the dinner between the Eucharist and evening session, you will need to register. Reservations may be made on-line or via postal mail. Information on how to register is available at the AABS web site.
