In the afternoon of Thursday May 27, EBW will host a Theological Symposium chaired by Pat Coyle featuring Sam McConkey, Austin Ivereigh and Deanna Thomson. Entitled “Post–pandemic: A Vision for a Better World. Have you stopped to think what life will be like post–pandemic?” The presenters will explore what life will be like for faith communities after the Covid–19 crisis.
