For those living in the New York City area (or beyond), a special conference on Modern Martyrs is being held this SATURDAY OCTOBER 7 at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary. I truly wish I could be there!

I am busy preparing for Touchstone‘s 2018 Annual Conference, “Be of Good Cheer: In the Company of Christ & the Great Cloud of Witnesses,” which begins next Thursday Evening, October 12, and runs through noon Saturday, October 14. Friday evening will be dedicated to the Russian New Martyrs of the Soviet Union, with a presentation from faculty of St. Tikhon’s Orthodox University in Moscow. I hope to see you at any one of the sessions! But if you can’t make it, do check out the conference on Modern Martyrs at St. Vladimir’s.
