you will be found

Sep 27, 2021

I was reminded today of a wonderful (virtual) gathering that I was privileged to be a part of twelve months ago this week. As I looked over the Festival of Friendship website to see what was planned for the festival this year I discovered the YouTube recording of my keynote.

I thought you might appreciate it if you have 45 minutes to spare.

The title of my conversation with Joshua Stancil was the theme of the October 2020 gathering: “You Will Be Found”.

    • Thanks, this talk gives hope of ‘being found’ on the journey, because of the good company of others (in Christ). Thanks, for that, and for all the other delightful sharing. I couldn’t help thinking of Peter running to the tomb and not finding his father waiting for him. Thanks.
