Postponement of Budapest conference in light of the Corona epidemic - online conference instead

Dear friends, members and associate members of Societas Homiletica

Due to the Corona epidemic the Board of Societas Homiletica has made two important decisions:

(1) We will not gather in Budapest this summer but are postponing our conference, “Preaching toward Truth,” to August 2022. (We decided not to plan a conference for 2021 because this would intrude on the schedule of other conferences already slated for next year, including that of the International Academy of Practical Theology and Societas Liturgica.) We are delighted that all of our keynote speakers who were invited for presentations this year have agreed to speak in 2022 on the same theme, even as they will no doubt adapt their comments according to the continually changing circumstances of the coming year. The date of our 2022 conference is most likely August 12-17th. We will confirm the exact dates in the summer of 2021 at the latest.
(2) We are pleased to offer a fully online, 2-day conference this summer, 10-12 August, focused on “Words in a Time of Crisis: Preaching during the COVID-19 Pandemic.” All participants are asked to register ahead of time and in lieu of a registration fee you are encouraged to make a donation in support of our programs. All of the details related to the online conference and registration may be found on our website.

See call for papers and further info on this conference on the website.

Take care of yourselves and each other!
