SojoFest: Celebrating 30 years

Friends of Sojourners embraced, sang, laughed, and prayed for four days last July in celebration of our first 30 years. Hundreds of participants came from all over the world-Jamaica, Switzerland, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Northern Ireland, and more than 25 states-to be part of worship services, workshops, and Bible studies. Jeanne Walker, of Sherwood, Arizona, echoed the sentiments of many participants: "My life will never be the same. From all the sessions, celebrations, and workshops, I have a new dimension to my thinking. I have never been actively involved in the world at large-only minimally and at arm's length-but I know now that I will never look at the world in the same way. I feel a new hope in our world. Thanks!"

We thank all those who celebrated with us-either at the festival or in spirit-for your love and support. More than one person said "See you next year!" which raises a tough question for us: Should we plan another SojoFest before the next decade goes by? We'll get back to you on that.
