This forum will take place on the campus of Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey. Located approximately one hour from New York City and one hour from Philadelphia, the Seminary is adjacent to Princeton University. Classes will meet in Stuart Hall, and worship will be held in Miller Chapel. Princeton Seminary’s dining hall in the Mackay Campus Center serves excellent food with a wide variety of selections for every meal, including at least one vegetarian entrée. Forum dinners will be served banquet-style in the main dining room.


Princeton is served by Newark Liberty International Airport in Newark, New Jersey, (a one-hour drive), and there are a variety of venues for inexpensive ground transportation. The Philadelphia International Airport is also approximately a one-hour drive from Princeton, but any realistic ground travel requires a rental car.
