KEEPING THE FAITH
Religious Freedom, Human Dignity, and the Public Good
June 6-8, 2002
Trinity Western University and the Evangelical Fellowshipof Canada
will be sponsoring an international conference on religious freedom atTrinity
Western University, Langley, British Columbia,Canada, June 6-8, 2002.
Challenges to religious freedom seemto be part of the human condition. In
varying degrees, followers of Jesus have experienced opposition, including
persecution, for twomillennia. Followers of other faiths have experienced
similar restrictions. In our dayrestrictions continue, and at times intensify,
even in advanced democracies.
This conference, occasioned in part by the historic 2001 SupremeCourt
of Canada decision on religious freedom,will focus on the following themes:
human dignity and religious freedom, global trends in religious freedom
(concentrating onrestrictions rather than outright persecution), religious
freedom in Canada (legal, political,social, and educational), public benefits of
religious freedom,citizenship and freedom, and pluralism and freedom.
Confirmed speakers include Dr. David Novakand Dr. Peter Marshall. There
will be a published volume of selected conference papers.
Although the evening sessions will be open to thepublic and will have
a more popular appeal, the conferenceis organized primarily as an academic
and professional assembly. For more information, contact:
