It’s just before 4am and I’m already on my way to O’Hare Airport. I’m speaking at Colgate University (Hamilton, NY) this afternoon and this evening. I just love speaking at secular college campuses because they are so diverse socially, theologically and politically. I believe that there is no better place to easily gather a cross-section of the population and really get things moving. I pray this time will be energizing and extremely productive for both the Christian and GLBT groups on campus who are bringing me out to help them initiate and foster a new relationship with each other. How exciting is that, seriously?
Here’s my schedule:
Arrive in Syracuse, NY at 9am (about an hour from Colgate University)
Lunch from 12-1pm with the senior leadership from the Christian group on campus
2-4pm: Exploring the Theology of Bridge Builders, The Marin Foundation’s 16 Commitments and a Q&A
Dinner at 5:30pm with the senior leadership with the GLBT group on campus
7-8:30pm: Dissecting the painful history between the GLBT and Christian communities in church and mainstream culture, delving then into the practical applications to bridge building on college campuses and a Q&A
8:30-9pm: Book signing
Fly back to Chicago on Thursday afternoon.
