Urbana 09

2009 December 28
by Julie Clawson


So I am spending a few days this week at Urbana 09. I never made it to Urbana when I was in school, so it’s fun to finally get to experience this massive event. There are some 16,000 people attending and thinking about doing missions and translating Christ’s incarnation into our daily lives. It’s overwhelming, and it’s been a long time since I’ve been a part of anything this full of crazy energy, but I’m excited to see what happens. And I’m looking forward to finally getting to hear from people like Ruth Padilla DeBorst and Shane Claiborne.

I will be part of a panel on missional worship in the church, leading two seminars on seeking everyday justice, and doing a booksigning in the bookstore. So if you are here at Urbana, I invite to to stop by and chat!

    My daughter, Kaili, is there. I wish I’d known you were going to be too. I would have loved for her to have met you, Julie.

    Have a wonderful time. And I’ll try and get in touch with Kai to look for you and your seminars. (Her Canadian cell is off except for emergencies and I’m not sure she’s checking her email. Perhaps I’ll find her on FB.)
