3rd floor Ballroom, Provo Public Library,

550 North University Avenue, Provo, Utah 84601

I would like to announce a forthcoming conference, “The Temple on Mount Zion,” to be held at the Provo Public Library on 22 September 2012.  This conference was originally organized by Matthew Brown before his untimely passing.  The conference focuses on LDS conceptions of ancient and modern Temple theology as reflected in the Bible and LDS scripture.  I’m attaching a program listing the participants and the time for their presentations, along with abstracts for each paper.

Admission to the conference is free, but seating is limited to about 300.  During the lunch hour you can bring a bag lunch to eat in conference room, or visit some of the restaurants around Center St. and University Ave, a few blocks south of the library.  The underground garage at the library is available for parking, but cars must be out at 6 pm.

Unfortunately, I’ll be unable to attend this conference, because I have another obligation up in Logan with which it conflicts precisely — namely, the annual meeting of the Society for Mormon Philosophy and Theology, of which I’m the unworthy and quite ineffective president.
