What an amazing whirlwind of a weekend we just had in Toronto at More Franchises: A Second Cup, a conference sponsored by The United Church of Canada in partnership with Emmanuel College, Toronto. Over 500 participants, over 100 workshops, an intercultural band of ten wonderful musicians – what more could we ask for?
And in the midst of the event, we celebrated the 85th anniversary of the United Church with a big worship service at Metropolitan United Church, with participation via video feed and Twitter from across the church, the whole thing streaming live to the internet. An amazing experience, and an honour to be involved in organizing and leading such a Spirit-filled service! The service is now archived online.
A big thanks to all our musician friends who helped lead music for the weekend: Maki Fushii, David-Roger Gagnon, Linnea Good, David Jonsson, Amy Lee, Lloyd MacLean and Neeraj and Sajan Prem. I couldn’t have done it without you!
