I was fortunate to attend RZIM’s conference this summer.

Many of the students arrived in England a day or two before the first day of summer school to do a little pre-conference sightseeing, but Keble College started to buzz with activity Sunday afternoon as the attendees arrived for the conference.

Despite this demanding curriculum, the yoke of the schedule was easy, and its content was deep and meaningful. As the attendees continued to congregate on the eve of the summer school, new friends were made as handshakes and names were exchanged, and hugs greeted friends made the previous year.
