So, the Orthodox Church In America is Having a Science Fiction Convention!: DoxaCon

And there will be cosplay too!

Now, if only other churches could get on the action. Hey, I should start a Kickstarter so I can attend? I mean, I wrote my thesis on Clement of Alexandria, so I do get to pass as Orthodox, am I right? #AMIRITE?

“DOXACON is an opportunity for Christian fans of the science-fiction & fantasy genre, to engage in positive exploration of themes held in common between Christianity, Fantasy and Science Fiction… especially in a time in which this genre is seeing a renaissance among popular culture. If you enjoy engaging in meaningful dialogue on subjects concerning Middle Earth, Hogwarts, Narnia, Star Trek, Star Wars or Dr. Who, to name just a few, then this is the conference is for you!”

For more information visit the DoxaCon events site; here is a list of sessions so far”

  1. Hello! I’m one of the organizers of DoxaCon. Our website is now fully updated with the complete listing of all speakers and their topic presentations for this event! We hope to see you there!!! Just to clarify, this event isn’t formally sponsored by any jurisdiction. This is just a bunch of “Geek Orthodox” who happen to attend our parish (Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America, OCA), who had a vision and through the love and encouragement of our parish, are making it happen!
