Every three years, 30, high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation known as the ELCA Youth Gathering. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, young people grow in faith and are challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives. An important part of the Gathering's ministry are the two pre-events, the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event MYLE , a faith formation and leadership development event primarily for youth of color, and the tAble, a gathering that gathers, blesses and empowers youth with disabilities.

Bob understood what she was asking: give a generic prayer to avoid offending those of other faiths.
Networking in the Desert Oct. After hurricanes hit the U. Davis Award to Mike Murphy. It was a joy to be able to attend the conference and meet so many talented and interesting people, some of whom have become my collaborators. I was ready to put Moving behind me, but hearing people respond to the reading re-energized me and inspired me to revisit that kind of play again…bringing my script to SETC was an amazing experience.
