Future of Theology (tentative title)

Dinner Room at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco

For the Spring 2020 meeting, we will be returning to the location of PCTS's historic roots at Grace Cathedral to discuss topics related to the Future of Theology, especially in light of its changing academic study, and discuss future changes to PCTS. To facilitate the change in venue and extended organizational discussion, we will meet only on Saturday afternoon and discuss two papers, instead of our prior schedule of meeting Friday afternoon through Saturday morning to discuss four papers.

We are also meeting on May 9 instead of our traditional week-or-two after Easter to accommodate scheduling.

Please check back at this page shortly before the meeting in case there are any last minute logistical or organizational changes.
