Historical Association, the Conference onFaith and History will be

sponsoring not one, but two events at thenational convention in Boston,

January 4-7, 2001. Ourtraditional gathering will be on Friday morning,

January 5, in the Nausett Room ofthe Westin Copley Place Hotel. We will

host our ever-popular coffee hourstarting at 7:30 a.m. (or whenever the

Secretary-Treasurer can find his way there), and then at 9:15a.m. we move

across the hall to the North Star Room for our businessmeeting and

academic session. The speaker will be Professor Andrew F. Wallsof the

University of Edinburgh, Scotland, a distinguishedscholar of non-Western

Christianity and good friend of the CFH. His topic willbe "The Historical

Implications of Global Christianity in the Non-Western World."Donald Yerxa

Then, as an addedtreat, Gordon College will sponsor a special

reception for the members and friends of the CFH onSaturday, January 6,

between 4:30and 6:00 p.m. at the world-famous Boston Museum of Science.

Hors d'oeuvres and finger foods will be provided. This will give youa chance

to get away from the crowded convention hotels (it is on thesubway's Green

Line E Train, Museumstop), and you will get free admission to the museum

as well. Your colleagues at Gordon College have been great boosters ofthe
