Messrs. Charles Coulombe and John Sharpe were coming to Kansas City this month to speak to a small group of men on some subjects. Other attendees suggested that both Dr. David Allen White and Dr. E. Michael Jones come to speak as well. I reached out and am honored that both men are coming. Two speakers might be a private affair, but four is a conference, like it or not.
I hope that this rather diverse group of speakers for an impromptu conference signals True Restoration's once and future stance: we stand for truth and do not believe that we can only collaborate with those with whom we agree 100%. That was a luxury afforded to those in the past. In the current crisis, it is not ours. We've gathered a group of erudite speakers who are learned and care about Catholicism, though all do not agree about best remedies to the current crisis. It will be left to you, the layman, to learn with your brain, to contemplate with prayer, and to act when things are made clear to you, with loyalty to the Church, not to a religious congregation.
Here is the most current copy of the schedule: http://freepdfhosting.com/8e57717c33.pdf
I think you're going to find these talks engaging and interesting, but given the short notice, I can imagine that plane airfares will be pricey (but it doesn't hurt to check: I use Hipmunk.com) but those within a driving distance can come in for the Saturday part of the conference only, which includes dinner with Dr. White at a great Austrian restaurant in the evening.
Cost is $350 for all three days, $150 for Saturday ONLY. All meals are included.
There are 5 full scholarships available for high-school, undergraduate, and graduate students. Travel is not included.

More announcements to come in the days ahead.
