Big Conference This Weekend

For those of you in the Texas area (and that's about 50% of people in America, I believe!), I just want to remind you of the big Fullness of Truth conference coming up this weekend.

Brant Pitre and I will be joining Scott Hahn and Jeff Cavins for this huge event in Houston, TX.

I am presenting twice:
1) The Kingdom of God is at Hand!: Jesus, David & the Church
2) Singing In The Reign: The Liturgy of God's Kingdom

The great thing about this conference is that it is being done in connection with the St. Paul Center. This will not be your typical popular level conference, with a hodge-podge of different presenters and topics. This is a conference with four speakers who all belong to the same "think-tank". You can count on all of the talks building upon one another.

If you haven't been to a St. Paul Center conference such as the Applied Biblical Studies Conference at Franciscan University, the St. Paul Center's Conference for Priests, Deacons and Seminarians or the Annual West Coast Biblical Studies Conference, you really don't know what you're missing.

I love these conferences because it's great to see a thousand Catholics walking around with beat-up, marked-up, Bibles, who come up and ask incredibly sophisticated questions. This is where you find those well-read, highly motivated Catholics coming out of the woodwork. It is very inspiring.

And, of course, I'm thrilled to hang out with my dearest friends who live on the other side of the country!

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to Houston for this exciting conference, but I'd love to get my grubby little hands on your presentations.

Please let us know if you are publishing your presentations.

Thanks,

Mark

If you visit the Fullness of Truth website that Mr. Barber linked to, Fullness of Truth is offering cd's of the presentations for sale at $7 each or the entire conference plus the St. Paul Panel Discussion and the Archbishop's homily for $50.(Toll-free 1 877 218 7884)

Disclaimer: I work for Fullness of Truth, though I am also a follower of this blog....

I haven't had a chance to listen to the cd's yet, but the attendees' responses have all been wonderful. We even had an attendee fly into Houston from Indiana just to attend the conference!

In Christ's peace and joy,
