Here at The Search for Piety and Obedience I’ve already posted once or twice about the upcoming 2014 General Conference of the Brethren in Christ Church in the U.S., which will convene this weekend at Lancaster Mennonite School in Lancaster, Pa.
I’ve been privileged to work on this campaign alongside two excellent colleagues, Kristine Frey (current Historical Society board member and former editor for Brethren in Christ Communications) and Harriet Sider Bicksler, the editor of Historical Society publications.
Together over the last two weeks we’ve spent multiple hours in the Brethren in Christ Historical Library and Archives at Messiah College preparing for our campaign. We’ve brainstormed strategy and approach. We’ve folded and stuffed new Historical Society brochures. We’ve scoured the archival holdings for past Conference ephemera to share with followers: quotations, fun facts, photos, and other tidbits.
Kristine and Harriet are thoughtful, creative people whose energy and determination are seemingly limitless, and whose enthusiasm for our work is infectious. I’ve learned a lot from them during our work on this campaign, and I’ve enjoyed our many conversations!
