Paideia Conference - May 29 - June 1, 2024!

PAIDEIA is holding their second annual conference in May. This time the topic is "Orthodoxy and Culture." It will be held at the Antiochian Village in Pennsylvania and the list of topics and speakers would need a literal kontax to list out all of them.  I encourage everyone to go who has either never been to the village before, never attended a theological conference before, or has interest in any of the myriad topics scheduled. Registration available here.

Here's a sampling of some of the talks:

  • David Ford, “Some Further Probing of the Mysteries of Male and Female in Marriage and in the Church”
  • Matthew Forrest Long, “The Art of Living: Orthodox Life and Human Well-being”
  • Nate Placencia, “The Philosophy of Race and Orthodox Anthropology”
  • Pdn. Brian Patrick Mitchell, “Gender and Ordination: Male and Female as Archic and Eucharistic Modes of Relation”
  • Jesse Cone, “Against ‘The Self’”
  • Mary Ford, “Conversion and Black Swans: The Role of Culture (Especially Literature) in Belief and Loss of Faith”
  • Dcn. Sampson Nash, “Identity, Sex, Gender, and Healing: Toward Orthodox Healing of Contemporary Maladies”
  • Sister Sidonia, “The Honeycomb in the Heart: Cultivating Awareness and Communion with God by Calling Upon His Name”
  • Joseph (Rico) Vitz, “A Strategic Eastern Alliance: Non-Ecumenical Reflections on Confucianism, Orthodoxy, and American Culture” 
A complete list of talks is available here.
