Listening to Eboo Patel at #ACP2017 (convention of Associated Church Press). I've admired his interfaith leadership for a long time, so it's nice to hear him in person. He's a Muslim speaking to Christian journalists & editors about building bridges. Great talk!
With Jim Hill, retiring executive director of Churchnet, at CBF Heartland's Celebration of Excellence dinner in Columbia, Mo. Jim, my boss for last 13 years, received an award recognizing his moral courage and advocacy work. Well deserved! Look for coverage in the June issue of Word&Way.
With my Word&Way predecessor, Bill Webb, at the Baptist News Global award dinner. Bill received BNG's lifetime achievement award in religious journalism. Fun night to honor a good Christian journalist. I'm thankful for his leadership at Word&Way for 20 years & guidance during the transition.
I'm moderating a breakout session at Churchnet's Spring Gathering with Helle Liht, assistant general secretary of the European Baptist Federation, joining via live video from #Estonia. She's talking about the work of #Baptists in Europe & Middle East in welcoming #refugees. Inspiring stories of Christians choosing faith over fear.
