I took this photo on Saturday morning around 5.30am. What a great start to the day!
This past Friday and Saturday I had the privilege to participate in a conference called Exploration2011. This event, planned by the United Methodist Church, assists young adults discern their vocation as it relates to their faith. Over 600 young adults from all over the country converged upon St. Louis for three days of worship, workshops, and fellowship. I attended as part of the Global Ministries group to talk with people about the opportunities we offer for young adults to put their faith into action across the US and around the world. I also participated in a panel on what life is like for a young adult in ministry, having an opportunity to draw upon past experiences. I left the event early because I had another preaching engagement and mission event outside of Pittsburgh on Sunday and Monday. What a fun weekend or work!
