Now we set our faces like flint toward Skokie, Illinois, for the event my son is calling “Patristipalooza.”

Lessons from the Early Church: Listening to the Fathers Today” will take place Friday and Saturday, October 22-23, at St. Lambert Parish in Skokie, Ill.

I’ll be giving two talks, along with Carl Sommer (author of We Look for a Kingdom: The Everyday Lives of the Early Christians), Rod Bennett (author of Four Witnesses: The Early Church in Her Own Words), and Father Richard Simon (“Reverend Know-It-All” of Relevant Radio fame).

It’s a great slate of talks, and a beautiful opportunity for conversation. And we’ll be raffling off books — and ancient coins with cool Christian symbols.

Check it out — and join us! (There’s a Facebook event page, too.)

Please tell all your friends in Chicagoland!
