Men’s Retreat 2019
February 1-3, 2019 at Hallowood Retreat and Conference Center
Dr. Bruce Douglass, Reformed Institute of Metropolitan Washington
We are extremely fortunate to have Dr. Bruce Douglass, the Director of the Reformed Institute of Metropolitan Washington, as our retreat leader. He is a noted authority on John Calvin and the Protestant Reformation, and on how reformed theology subsequently influenced the development of modern Europe and the creation of a new constitutional republic in the New World that we know of as the United States of America. Bruce is well known to many in our church, having presented a number of lecture series at our Sunday morning adult education classes relating to reformed religion and its influence on theological, cultural, and social issues in contemporary American society.
Bruce Douglass retired earlier this year from his post as Associate Professor in the Department of Government at Georgetown University, where he taught political and social theory. A graduate of Yale (Master of Divinity) and Duke Universities (Master and Ph.D. in political science), he chaired the Department of Government and also served as Dean of the Faculty of Georgetown College. His publications include several edited volumes, such as One Nation Under God, Catholicism and Liberalism, and Liberalism and the Good. His essays have appeared in a variety of scholarly journals as well as such popular publications as The Responsive Community, The Christian Century, Commonweal, Christianity and Crisis, and the New Oxford Review.
Those men who have attended previous retreats know how enjoyable and rewarding the program, food, and fellowship have been. Men who have never before attended a retreat should consider attending this one. Sign up will begin the first Sunday in November in Fellowship Hall.
