Double Header Weekend!

My weekend is packed, and I am looking forward to all of it!

Friday, I'm in Virginia Beach participating in Regent University School of Law's 2012 Symposium.  The symposium—Media and the Law: Seeking Justice for the Least of These—is hosted by the Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, the Rule of Law.

The session I'm participating in focuses on Human Trafficking Awareness.

Besides the honor of being a participant, I'll be meeting with two women who were leaders in the Freedom Climb on Mt. Kilimanjaro. One of them made the climb. I can't wait for that conversation!

Saturday I'll be back in Massachusetts, speaking at Conversations—a gathering of women at Grace Chapel in Lexington, under the leadership of Cynthia Fantasia. A number of these women have already mobilized for justice causes—both locally and overseas. Hopefully, after Conversations, more will be thinking about what God wants them to do.

One other note. Many of you have been praying for my father who was diagnosed with lung cancer back in December and in January was hospitalized with pneumonia. He has worked hard to regain strength and today (Wednesday) began radiation treatments. I've been able to be with him twice since his diagnosis, for two weeks at a time—some incredibly precious times. Thank you so much for praying and for your words of encouragement. I hope you'll continue to remember him and the whole family, as we support him in this battle.
