    Wish I could be there. Sounds interesting.

    Tony Campolo very recently spoke at an event in Canada. Ex-Gay Watch provided a pretty fair review of the event.

      We’re going to record it and then post it, so you can indeed be there with us, just maybe not tonight though :)

        Hi Andrew,
        I’m a friend of Hanna D. and she sent me a copy of your book, which I have yet to read… but my husband and I desperately need God to formulate a response in us to the homosexual lifestyle… all the while loving the daylights out of the youth we work with. Looking forward to reading the book and especially to hearing Tony’s talk from tonight – where will it be posted?!

    Andrew, Thank you for an incredible night. What a great talk by Tony. Thank you for all you do for the GLBTQ and Christianity!! It was nice finally meeting you last night.

    That was an awesome event Andrew! God bless you and your ministry. I’m glad that God has laid it on your heart to be like this, I mean I’m sure God lays it on ALL our hearts but few choose to hear and listen.

    I’m glad that I have fellow followers of Christ who are like you in not only word but deed because both need to be put into practice.

    May God continue to bless you :) you rock!
