The Ruth Institute has announced the details of its annual conference, It Takes A Family to Raise A Village (ITAF). According to the registration site, “The Land Center/Ruth Institute Co-Sponsored ITAF (It Takes A Family) will be held on April 11 at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary at the Riley Center in room 150.

As a participant in ITAF 2013, I can testify that the conference is an eye-opening experience. The speakers were from several different backgrounds – theology, sociology, political science, medicine, and economics. It shows one the vital importance of this pre-political institution.
