Finding God in the City of Angels!

Once again, the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress was an unbelievable experience! I can’t thank the staff of the Office for Religious Education in LA for having me as a speaker…what a privilege! I also enjoyed sitting in on some of the presenters…so inspiring, as was the amazing closing liturgy! Here are some pics:

  1. Thanks Joe for another great presentation at RE Congress! Can’t wait to get started reading your new book “Under the Influence of Jesus”!

  2. G’day Joe,
    I’m an Aussie who was at the LA Congress and was blown away by your presentation on the Friday…..
    I hope you have visiting Australia on your agenda as I know of a Catholic College in Cairns ( gateway to the Great Barrier Reef in Tropical far North Queensland) that would appreciate having you evangelise to the school community.
    Adding to your retirement pension by purchasing many of your books.
    Cheers mate!!!
