Invitation to Leitourgias 11th meeting in Reykjavík Iceland, November 10-13 2015
We have the great pleasure to invite you to a rich and happy meeting on the Saga Island of ice and fire, as we gather to explore liturgy and worship within the Leitourgia network for the eleventh time.
The theme of the conference is Living Word - Living Tradition? Our main speakers are Gail Ramshaw and Gordon Lathrop, as well as esteemed represantatives from the different Nordic countries. We will also enjoy the Icelandic and the West-Nordic context and explore how our worship traditions are inspired and shaped by local traditions in different times.
We are happy to invite you to a dinner at the residence of the Bishop of Iceland, Agnes Sigurðardóttir, and also to take you to the great natural wonder of the Blue Lagoon, where we’ll have our festive dinner this year.
