Conferring, which workshops to attend this week

Food is great here. People friendly and fun. Deliciously warm weather.

A brass band started off the conference tonight with a bang. Noel Castellanos talked to us about his conviction that confrontation with injustice completes the framework for us to work in neighborhoods and with people who are vulnerable, on margins.

Leroy Barber later spoke of our need to recognize that God is not going to use those of us who are transplanted, whether we are ‘incarnational’ or not, to bring renewal to our communities. Rather, that we are to be the cultivators of those living in underserved communities, who will be the ones God uses to set things right.

Great music and worship tonight with the CCDA musicians, too.
