The Johannite Conclave

AJC Conclave 2009

I'm looking forward again to attending the Conclave of the Apostolic Johannite Church, May 22-28,  in Chicago.  The Conclave is an excellent opportunity for fellowship, discussion, learning, and worship. 

Here's just a sampling of some of the scheduled presentations:

  • Shaun McCann, Mar Iohannes IV - The Apocryphon of John and the Johannite Tradition
  • Richard Smoley: Inner Christianity
  • Dr. Juliana Eimer: The Divine Neuter
  • Dr. Jeffrey S. Kupperman: The Limits of Ontology: The Good and Evil in Pseudo-Dionysius
  • I'll also be making a presentation on The Valentinian Theurgy of Marcus the Magician.
In addition to the presentations, there will be time to meet clergy and laity from the AJC and other churches and the opportunity to participate in the Grail of Undefiled Wisdom, a unique Johannite Mass.  I'm not a member of the AJC, and have no formal connection to the Church, beyond bonds of deep friendship with several of the clergy and members, but I have been richly rewarded by my attendance at previous Conclaves - if you're in the area, or can get there for the week or for a few days, it will be time well spent.
