I’m Still California Dreamin’!

I had a wonderful time at the Religious Education Congress in Los Angeles this past weekend! Thanks to all the great folks who were so welcoming!

Before I go any further, I promised those who attended my presentation that I would have a PDF of the Powerpoint with my notes available here on my blog. I will get to that tomorrow…today I need to plan for my RE class for tonight!!!

Here are a few pics that capture the fun and excitement:
