Every year I go through mental and fiscal gymnastics to see if I can go to the annual CiRCE conference. Every year there is a roadblock; sometimes it's time, sometimes it's money, often it's family needs. This year there was EVERY roadblock possible. It was very obvious I was NOT supposed to attend, even though the topic is one I have been wrestling with deeply for the last three years: What is Man? A Contemplation of the Divine Image.

At least now I can listen to some of the talks.  Want to join me?  You can find the talks online, some free and some for cost:

2011 CiRCE Conference talks for purchase

A special note:  One of the reasons I was so sorry to miss this year's conference is that my dear friend Marcia Brim (from Brimwood Press) spoke on narrative theology, specifically the Genesis 1-3 text.  We've had conversations on this topic at our annual lunches for the last few years; I would have LOVED to be there to participate in the discussion that was birthed from her talk.  I highly recommend you listen to Teaching Theology through Story.  It can be found in that second link, just scroll down to the end of the list.

I am already looking ahead to 2012...maybe this time the road will be clear.

Thanks, Diane! I've always thought it would be great to attend a CiRCE conference, too, but so far have only been able to enjoy the recordings. I've shared these links with my support group, so they can enjoy them, too.

Did you notice John Patrick on the list? I thought of you.

Maybe we can go together some year.

Yes, I saw that he was giving the famous "Hittites" talk.

I'd love to meet you at CiRCE someday when the road is clear for both of us.
