Towards a Local Orthodox Church

The Huffington Institute's 2012 Ecumenical Symposium is fast approaching. Are you registered yet? 

Under the theme of "Pan-Orthodoxy in North America: Towards a Local Church," several authors whom I have reviewed or noted on here previously will be presenting papers at this exciting and welcome gathering, including:
A complete listing of speakers is available here

About the conference theme, the organizers tell us:
Offering much more than ethnic foods and festivals, Orthodoxy is often called America's best-kept secret. Orthodox America's story is not simply about fragrant incense, ancient chants, and holy icons. Rather, Orthodoxy in America is complex mosaic of historical circumstances, struggles for self-identity, and intriguing people.
The 2012 Huffington Ecumenical Symposium presents Pan-Orthodoxy in North America: Towards a Local Church on March 16-17, 2012. Come to enjoy food and fellowship, and to hear Orthodox and Catholic experts explain the history of Orthodoxy in North America, discuss the problem of uniting several jurisdictions into one church, and introduce a clear view of North American Pan-Orthodoxy through liturgical music, social justice, and the parish.
