Old Friends and a Great Time

Last week I attended a conference at one of New York City's most famous churches, The Riverside Church for their Fosdick Convocation. Named after its founding pastor, Henry Emerson Fosdick, the conference features the nations leading preachers, social justice advocates, and a few prophets thrown in for good measure.

And besides the great lectures and meetings, I ran into many colleagues and friends from seminary. I enjoyed sitting with them as we learned together ways in which to make our faith a contemporary presence in modern social and political settings. We also prayed and worshipped together. And we ate together too!

All in all, I had a wonderful week of enrichment, getting reacquainted with old friends, and well as being inspired by the Good News.
