to their supremely important meetings of thecentury that same weekend.

departmental colleagues promise that thiswill be one of our finest
meetings ever. Just to view the physical environment there is absolutely

one of the twelve charter member organizationsof the recently founded
Council of Christian Scholarly Societies. This body grew out of discussions
among thevarious discipline groups that the Institute for Advanced
Christian Studies has sponsoredover the past few years. I have
represented theCFH at several of these gatherings. The purpose of the
CCSS is to be a vehicle for the membersocieties to exchange ideas about
their individual and common goals,activities, and procedures and
provide a crossdisciplinary forum in which its members can address major
intellectual issues of the day.Through the CCSS member organizations
can provide practical supportto each other and share the responsibility to
nurture a new generation of Christian scholars.

to send two official representatives, although othersare welcome to
attend. If youwould like more information, please contact the
