An Invitation

I wanted to take this opportunity to invite any interested readers who find themselves in the Twin Cities area on October 18th to attend my Archbishop Ireland Memorial Lecture, "The Child in the Family of God." This lecture if free and open to the public and will be based upon research found in "Let the Little Children Come to Me": Childhood and Children in Early Christianity and current research on the images of childhood and children in the Church in the letters of Paul. Please feel free to come, I would love to meet some of the readers of this blog!
