Rebecca Greenlee, IL
I am Rebecca Greenlee, from the Diocese of Springfield, Illinois. I am a senior in Comparative Literature and French at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am very excited about the festival because I went to Gather in Estes Park, CO and it was an amazing experience. There is nothing more refreshing and fantastic than a bunch of Episcopalians together to discuss the church, and life in general. It is amazing to see so many different people traveling from around the nation and world to work for the same goals, and a brilliant way to make new friends that inevitably last, while expanding our minds and opportunities. And I must say, I am incredibly fond of the Episcopal church.
presents Young Adult Voices, a network of places and web-places where young adults in the church can share their thoughts, hear from others and make themselves heard. We invite your contributions at any time, but the high traffic moments will be during festivals, gatherings and special moments in the life of the church, like General Convention 2009. We'll be gathering submissions all through the festival, July 9-14, from participants, observers and deputies, so check in early and often and hear what young adults are saying. And, hey, if you can't be there but want to hear about something, send a message or a comment and we'll find someone to explore and report back. See you in Anaheim!
