We have also welcomed two alums back as campus ministry interns. Melanie Smith, '05, small group ministry, and Keith Peterson, '07, worship, have added energy and enthusiasm to our work. Ben Brody, '98, worship, and Stephy Beans, prayer, round out the team. We have been blessed with a vision and unity that has made this year a great delight for me.
In January I had the privilege of traveling with 19 students, along with Dayna Coleman-Jones and Nicole Boymook, from student life, on the Prejudice Across America course. Visits to New York City, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and Chicago stretched us in amazing ways as we examined the history of race relations in the U.S. We met some of the great leaders of the Civil Rights Movement, including Andrew Young, Bernice King and Jesse Jackson. Worship at Abyssinian Baptist Church (Harlem), Ebenezer Baptist Church (Dr. King's home church in Atlanta), and Trinity United Church of Christ (President Obama's home church in Chicago) were also highlights. And yes, we were on the mall in D.C. for the inauguration, an experience we will always treasure.This year I have had the opportunity to present frequently on my work in Shalom theology, including at "Envision: Faith, Politics and the Future" (Princeton University), Huntington University (Indiana), and the CCCU Campus Pastors' Conference (California). I am grateful to God each day for the gift of health, life, family and community. Peace of Christ.
