Rachel Held Evans reflects on her conference experience

Good Fruit: Thoughts on the Gay Christian Network Conference

Shannon Ford, a friend from Mercy Street, came to the conference for this talk so I got to share it with her.  Rachel did well for a self-professed non-public speaker.  Her heart and thoughtfulness came through.

The thrust of her talk was that grace is inclusive ... it extends to me and also the Mark Driscoll's and Phil Robertsons of the world.  She doesn't like "ally" because that implies the side-taking in the culture wars.  She prefers "sibling" because it gets to our connectedness as family.  Good talk.  Short and Sweet with some powerful moments.
