Comment publisher Cardus celebrated the purchase of its first ever building on Wednesday, with a gala fundraiser at our new digs: 185 Young Street, Hamilton L8N 1V9. Check out a raft of photos from the event at Cardus' new Facebook page!
Comment contributor Jamie Smith co-hosts a conference October 29-31, 2009 at Calvin College (Grand Rapids, Mich.): "Teaching, Learning, and Christian Practices." The conference will explore how faith practices like hospitality, Sabbath-keeping, forgiveness, intentional community, healing, and prayer connect with learning practices. Our guess is that readers of Jamie's recent book Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation will hear resonances between the book and the conference . . .
