We're very much appreciate your enthusiasm in various reformed ministry.Since 2009 will be a big year for calvin 500 annivessary, we are planning to host a blog conference on mar, humbly learning from Calvin's thoughts and influences in 16-17th century, and to explore its implication within chinese churches today.

The aim of this conference is to foster theological reading habit and research discipline on reformed and puritans' heritages among chinese theo-bloggers via the blogosphere. We will approach an advisor to be our dissertion reader, so that the conference will be respected.Therefore, we're intended to contact with Dr.Lee Keng Ang and Dr.Samuel Ling.

While some spots are already filled, there're still plenty of room. Any submisson related to this general focus would be open to consideration, creative approaches is encouraged. You may propose a paper research before 1st sept, and finish before 1st Jan 2009. We will declare all the author and proposed title after 1st sept.If you want to commend any particular paper, may inform us, so that it will be sent to you after 1st Jan 2009.

The paper 2000-3000 words ,commend 500-1000 words. If could in chinese, if not we will arrange someone to translate for you.The conference will be doing online, presenting, commending and discussing each article per day. If you're really interest, we're looking forward to your proposal in this conference. Hope this will be a good set up, we're eager for an interesting journey!

Hi Dave,

I've been waiting for someone response for advising this conference.But Seems they're busy(so far)or less passionate.

I think Kam Weng is certainly someone to be enthusiastic about if he's approachable and able to read chinese article.

What if you could help us in approach him, it would be extremely helpful.Thanks for the encouraging suggestion.

Many thanks!
