"And they, the people who had bought into the culture of silence, got the revelation.
They saw Love pouring from the heart of God. They heard the power of the Truth spoken
in their own voice. They stood with boldness, without shame or fear of recrimination.
They risked the blow of death itself for the right to speak their word and name
their world. They got the victory!" (Revelation 12:11 IWT Paraphrase)
The festival kicks off soon and I continue to be awestruck by a particular group of people who,
year after year, never cease to amaze me with their tenacity, boldness, humility, self-sacrifice
