A short note from the Orientale Lumen Conference in D.C.

I’m writing this short post in the library of the Washington Retreat House in D.C. I am attending the Orientale Lumen Conference here and am giving a talk tomorrow on theosis and the role of the laity. The schedule is very full and internet access is limited, so I won’t be blogging too much this week. But I will write a bit about the conference, which is ecumenical in purpose and in the best sense of the word, as soon as I can.
