This is not my normal blog. Normally, I share a perspective from the field but today I’m sharing a perspective from the Advisory Board.
For the last couple years, I have had the privilege of serving on the Advisory Board for youTheology at Saint Paul School of Theology and this program has many elements from the year-long program and the Pan-Methodist Pilgrimage to Youth Workers Gathering in the Spring to the new One-Day event that we introduced last fall.
None of these would be possible without the hard work of the people behind the scenes. And I’d like to say a special thank you to Kathy Williams who has been in charge of Planning & Logistics but is leaving us to become a Pastor in Topeka. Our loss is their gain and God has great plans for her in the future.
I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to publicly thank Kathy in front of the current class of youTheology on the eve of their Pilgrimage and I’m looking forward to reading about their journeys at www.youtheology.com/panmethodistpilgrimage2011 over the next week.
