San Diego, CA
It was such a pleasure to reconnect with so many of you at Kinship Kampmeeting this year in San Diego! This year’s theme was Celebrating our Journey. Kinship Kampmeeting is SDA Kinship’s annual event. While we were there, my family and I stayed with Daneen Akers and Stephen Eyer of Watchfire Films where we were able to catch a sneak preview of their latest Outspoken installment Camilo. If you have not had a chance to see it yet, I highly recommend it. This one not only tells Camilo’s story, but highlights the life and death importance of having and recognizing GSA clubs on Christian university campuses.
Wild Goose Festival
Hot Springs, NC
This past weekend I had the blessing of being able to attend this summer’s Wild Goose Festival in Hot Springs, NC. I was there with Alicia Johnston, a dear friend of mine. Three of the presenters that I had the opportunity to listen to, and who impacted me the most were: Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, Rev. Dr. William Barber II, and Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III. Dr. Robyn was a new find for me. Conversations with Robyn between sessions made it overwhelmingly obvious to me how much they have to offer. If these three names are unfamiliar to you, all three would be well worth your making space in your life to give them a listen. They are phenomenal.
