Since the earliest days, Christians have gathered in particular places as Church to experience God revealing God’s self.  These gatherings have continuously evolved throughout history, especially in responding to context.  Biblical and liturgical traditions provide a wealth of theological resources with which to reflect amidst today’s challenges.  This ULS Spring Convocation will engage the question of gathering during and after the pandemic: in creation, in community, in chancel, and in cyberspace.  Join Profs. Hall and Schiefelbein-Guerrero to explore these four gatherings of Church.
