This is simply a great idea for this, and probably other, conferences.
There is a new discussion facility on the St. Louis Shroud Conference site. CLICK HERE and bookmark this link. To sign in, press the ‘Subscribe to Forum’ button, enter your email address (the one you used to sign up for the conference), and enter the word ‘conference’ as the password. There is a new user section as well under the ‘Subscribe to Forum’ button.
As yesterday’s latest update indicates:
This discussion forum has been initiated to generate discussion about significant aspects of the study of the Shroud. This forum is not just for those who attend the conference but is open to the public. The discussions will include questions from the attendees to the conference speakers. Naturally, we cannot guarantee that all speakers will agree to provide answers, but we hope that many will participate. The forum will also include discussions between participants regarding any topic of interest related to the Shroud. Anyone can read the various replies that are made on a topic, but one has to register to make comments.
