Notes From the Sacred Space Symposium at BYU: Introductory Remarks by Elder Cecil Samuelson

By June 3, 2009

Elder Cecil O. Samuelson, President of Brigham Young University kicked off the Sacred Space Symposium with very brief remarks welcoming both presenters and guests. He remarked, in essence, that one of the roles of a university is to understand our own tradition better and also the understandings and perspectives of others. With presentations across a wide theological range, this is shaping up to be a great symposium. 

The JI is out in force here this morning and we will be providing notes for each presentation. Stay tuned!!
