We are excited  to announce that Reverend Michelle Ledder will be our keynote speaker.  Rev. Ledder was a guest preacher this past August and we are privileged to have her join us. ("A Brand New Shibboleth," the sermon she preached at Foundry, is available in transcript form and as a podcast here.)
