The keynote address at the 211th Autumnal Meeting of the Rhode Island Conference is being given by Dr. Lee Barrett, the Mary B. and Henry P. Stager Professor of Theology at Lancaster Theological Seminary, where he has taught since September 1993. Dr. Barrett's interests include the relationship between the doctrinal traditions of the Christian churches and contemporary culture. He is the author of essays concerning the present-day implications of the theology of the Reformed tradition, as well as the thoughts of Søren Kierkegaard. Lee is particularly interested in the theological significance of literature and the visual arts.

The theme of this year's Autumnal Meeting is Grace in a Time of Change, from the Scripture Romans 5:1-5:

1 Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boasting our hope of sharing the glory of God.  3 And not only that, but we also boast  in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

Breakfast and Lunch will be provided

A clothing and food drive to benefit Irons Homestead is being held in conjunction with the meeting.
