“Living Theology: The Eucharist in Question” event details (5/16/14)

The UCC Theological Summit (“Dallastown II”) will convene on Friday, May 16, 2014 at 8:30 AM at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, 205 W. Main St., Dallastown, PA.  The event will feature guest facilitation from Dr. Victor Taylor of York College of Pennsylvania and a session via internet with Carl Raschke of the University of Denver–two names with whom most readers of this blog will be familiar.

Although the focus of the event will be on practices and theology of the United Church of Christ, registration is open to anyone.

The papers scheduled for the day are:


“Communion qua Communion” – Rev. Courtney Stange-Tregear, Zion UCC, Perry Hall, MD

“Locating the Event in Communion: On an Event with Eternal Significance without Metaphysics” – Rev. Ryan P. Sirmons, The United Church of Christ of Annapolis, MD

“Parasacramentality and Absolute Death” – Rev. Dr. Christopher D. Rodkey, St. Paul’s UCC, Dallastown, PA


Child care will be provided to participants if a request is made to me (cdrodkey <at] yahoo [dot> co m) by April 25.

Program registration is $15 (covering expenses for the summit), paid in advance or at the door; please register on our Eventbrite website.
