In a few weeks, on March 25 and 26 to be exact, the Western Commission for the Study of Religion, affectionately known as WECSOR, will be held here in Berkeley, mere blocks from my home at the Bade Museum of the Church Divinity School of the Pacific. That school has a particularly nice lawn that yours truly may at times be found enjoying during the high summer, with iced coffee(s) and book(s).
So, if any readers are coming to Berkeley for this little conference, please do let me know. I’m thinking to arrange a little evening to-do, perhaps at my favorite watering-hole in town, Jupiter, with its extensive menu of grub and grog. Hopefully it’ll be dry so we can sit out in the courtyard, with its fiery fountain! Certainly I’ll have to show my guests the two best bookstores in town, and we could certainly enjoy some of the local eateries during lunch.
So, let me know if you’re coming, either by email or comment here. It’d certainly be nice to meet folks in person.
UPDATE: Gracious! Up until I heard the acronym spoken aloud today, I had heard and read “WESCOR” and typed it so above, which I’ve since corrected. How odd. I can’t remember that ever having happened before. Age, I suppose.
