Don’t Forget the Canadian Baptist Historical Society Meeting This Saturday!

You don’t want to miss the upcoming Canadian Baptist Historical Society meeting Saturday March 7, 2009. The event will be held at Heritage College and Seminary (175 Holiday Inn Drive, Cambridge, ON).

Don’t miss Dr. Gord Heath (McMaster) on “Ontario Baptists and the War of 1812” and Dr. Stan Fowler (Heritage) on “Theory and Practice of Associations in Early Baptist Life.”

It begins at 9:30 AM and will run until 12:15 PM. Lunch will be followed (for those interested) at Kelsey’s in Cambridge.

The Canadian Baptist Historical Society (CBHS) traces its origins back to the nineteenth century when Baptists passionate about their heritage began a process of preserving critical documents and studying the Baptist presence in Ontario and Quebec. Its primary focus is on the history of all Baptists in the Canadian context, but the study of Baptists around the globe is also a part of its mandate. Scholars, pastors, students and those interested in Baptist history are all warmly invited to attend meetings of the society. The CBHS is always interested in paper proposals for its meetings, and if you have a proposal for next year’s meeting please send it to Gord Heath.

The CBHS has also recently started to publish a series of books on Baptist history. Volume One will be on Canadian Baptists and Public Life (anticipated publication in 2009). Two other volumes are anticipated in 2010 and 2011.

Future locations will be McMaster Divinity College (2010) and Tyndale Seminary (2011).
