The Progressive Faith Blog Con started last night, and what a good beginning it was.
Thurman Hart of Xpatriated Texan gave us some powerful opening remarks. Go read.
We began with a Jewish prayer service, led by the Velveteen Rabbi herself, Rachel Barenblat. It was pleasure to finally get to meet her. The service was full of taqwa - God consciousness. It was not just about the prayer, but about praying to remember God outside of the liturgical setting, to know that God is, and always should be, with us. Download and read her prayer book.
We sat down for dinner and made friends. See the list of attendees to get a sense of who was there.
