Why are you excited to speak to the Conference’s Theme of “Come and See” (John 1:39)?
I am excited to speak on the topic “Come and See” because it is with this greeting that we invite others to experience our faith. This critically important invitation is oftentimes neglected by our people for various reasons. I am looking forward to sharing our experiences of the last decade in inviting people to experience the rich depth our Holy Orthodox faith offers. I had such a wonderful time at the College Conference East in 2015, and am honored to be a part of this year’s event.
