2023 IBS-ELS Annual Members’ Dinner

The International Bonhoeffer Society – English Language Section invites you to our annual Bonhoeffer Society Dinner, which is held conjointly with the American Academy of Religion Annual Meeting

           6:15-8:00 PM DINNER AND PROGRAM

(The church is a 1.2 mile walk from the Convention Center. If you prefer not to walk, we recommend a Lyft, Uber, or Taxi).

San Antonio Mennonite Church operates a hospitality house called La Casa de Maria y Marta for asylum seekers recently released from detention. The immigrant families at the house have offered to make us a homemade Central American meal. The cost of the dinner goes toward that meal and a donation to the hospitality house.  

RSVP: SPACE IS LIMITED.

The cost of the dinner is $40 per person. 

(Limited student scholarships are available. If interested, please email Jenny McBride, [email protected]).

Program

The IBS-ELS Board of Directors is pleased to announce that our society vice-president, Dr. Lori Brandt Hale, will be our speaker for the evening. Brandt Hale is Professor of Religion at Augsburg University in Minneapolis, MN, is the co-editor, with W. David Hall, of Bonhoeffer, Theology, and Political Resistance (Lexington Books, 2020), and has served on the Executive Board of the IBS-ELS Board of Directors (in various roles) since 2005. Her remarks will include reflections on the development of the website – launched in June of 2022 – in alignment with the strategic planning work of the Society, undertaken in 2016. In addition, she will consider how the articulation of a shared mission and vision for the Society – stemming from that intentional strategic planning – subverts notions of a “Bonhoeffer Brand.”
