Visit to Mississippi College
The Riders are visiting Mississippi College today and tomorrow, and are having a Community Rally and picnic on tuesday. They're holding a prayer vigil on the edge of campus tonight from 8-11pm, and will be holding another vigil and dialoging with students tomorrow, starting at 9am, and will walking down the street to a coffee shop to continue hanging out around 5pm.
I was privileged to be able to hang out with some of the Riders last night and talk about things, and attended church (a progressive baptist church) with some of them this morning. It was really awesome, being able to worship with them, my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
Keep them in your thoughts/prayers the next few days they're here. Last year, the climate of the city, and the administration was very hostile, this year its harder to gauge things.. There are many mixed feelings on campus, people unsure of their stance on the issue. I hope God uses their time here to open up minds and help create a safer environment for the LGBTQ students here.
