Theological Group Book and Dinner Initiatives

Bishop and Theologians Reading Groups: This year we will continue the initiative begun under the presidency of Susan Ross to invite members of the CTSA to organize small local reading groups of up to ten people including at least one local bishop, to study and discuss a mutually chosen theological text, possibly in the context of a shared meal.  Once again, the board will fund up to ten such groups for a maximum of $500 each; the funds are meant to cover the cost of books and dinner.  We suggest that groups choose a classic theological text (e.g., Augustine, Bonaventure, Newman) for discussion. Groups are asked to submit a request for 
funding for the board consideration by December 15, 2015 that will include 1) the names of the participants; and 2) the text(s) that you will be discussing.  The proposals can be e-mailed to me  The board will consider these applications by email consultation and will notify the groups of the results by January 12, 2015.
