Christian Scholars' Conference

As an addendum to Phil's post below about the Tokens Radio show, the Christian Scholars' Conference is taking place the next three days on the campus of Lipscomb University. In addition to the 71 paper and panel sessions, there are four main sessions, featuring plenary speakers Billy Collins (US Poet Laureate, 2001-2003), Marilynne Robinson (Pulitzer Prize Winner, 2005), Hubert G. Locke, and Barbara Brown Taylor. Those sessions are free and open to the public, and will doubtless be well worth your time. Times and additional details can be found here.

Tokens Show

Hi all.

I just wanted to remind you of the Tokens Show this Thursday at 7:30pm at Lipscomb University: Stories We Live By. This one features Ron Block of Union Station, Sandra McCracken, Buddy Greene, and interviews with Barbara Brown Taylor and Hubert Locke.

Tickets are available here:

I highly recommend it. It'll be one of the most fun and thought-provoking times you've had in a while.
