I may be a bit biased, but on Saturday night the best message of the conference was given. It was the Plenary session, and a young lady that I admire quite a bit was given the pulpit. She told a story of her ministry to a friend at her school. She was articulate, she was sincere and she was beautiful.
I think that the fact that this fifteen year old student was seriously involved in mission, was sacrificing some of her own time, her own life, to bring hope to someone who was lacking it, challenged me and most of the attendees. Her critique of the current beauty obsession and distortion, was spot on. And her true caring, and love for her friend was inspiring.
She was a bright and shining light in a weekend of bright and shining lights. But her, I noticed.
We share the last name too, interestingly enough.
