Thursday 3:30-5 concurrent session: Love, Impartiality and Obligation in Friendship
Friday 8:30-10:00: Hard choice--probably Christian Friendships of Reconciliation and Sacrifice.
Friday 1:30-3:00: Hard choice but: Friendship in the Practice of the Church.
Saturday 8:30-10:00--hardest choice of them all: toss-up between The Contours of Christian Friendship and Friendship as a Source of Dialogue, Forgiveness and Christian Community. If I can mix and match during sessions, no question I will do it here.
Saturday 1:30-3:00: Another hard choice but leaning towards Christian Friendship in Scripture and Literature, but also want Envisioning the Civic and Political through Friendship, or, Friendship and Rival Views of Human Nature.
The plenary sessions look to be wonderful:

Befriending the Religious Other: Why Love is Easier Than Friendship--This is my title for churches and friendship--why community is easier than friendship).
