I just want to thank the teens and parents who made our trip to the 2014 Rainbow Conference a huge success last weekend! It was a great experience for all who attended and, for those of you who were praying with us at home but not able to attend the conference, I wanted to share some resources with you!
First, the Detroit News wrote a wonderful article about the conference-- you can read it here.
Second, the conference theme was "Ignite the Light". Keynote sessions focused on how Christians are commissioned by Jesus to show their love and shine His light into the world! The conference scripture verse was Matthew 5:14-16. On Saturday evening, Archbishop Vigneron encouraged the young people to go out and form relationships of love and service with individuals in their community.
Third, the conference Keynote speakers were Jackie Francois and Cooper Ray. Here is a great video of a presentation that Jackie gave at Steubenville, which I feel captures the heart of her Spirit and her message!
Finally, on the last day of the conference our group was able to thank Jackie and Cooper for their amazing testimonies and take a group photo with them!
Again, I want to thank the participants for being so open to the Spirit during the conference. I also want to thank Resurrection Parish, our "buddies" during the conference for helping us to dive deeper into the message of the weekend. We plan to attend the 2015 Rainbow Conference next year, I hope that you consider joining us!
