I listened intently to Tony Campolo tonight (For almost the whole time he spoke. I did spend just a little bit of time petting and playing with an adorable little dog who just happened to be greeting people backstage)
Tony made lots of points --but here's just a little of what I remember
God has been at work in the world for a long, long time -- We never can take God somewhere where God is not.
We have been raised in a culture of fear
As pastors and teachers, our job is to challenge others to share Jesus' hope and love in the world.
All of need to remember that Jesus has a heart for the outcast and the marginalized. Our hearts must be there too.
Tony has such a heart for Jesus. He has such a heart for justice. He challenges me hold on to hope -- even when I get tired of it.
