Convocation 10/23/17: Caitlin Crosby

Has pulling out the interview table ever made a convocation better? I really don’t think it has. Most of the time, it takes a good, complete convo message, and tacks on an additional 30 minutes.  Its like the Hobbit trilogy, a good thing that goes on for far too long.

Today’s convo was pretty straightforward, so there is not lot to write about it. Caitlin Crosby, Monday’s speaker, told us about how she came to found The Giving Keys, a business that provides jobs to the homeless. Her story was an inspiring tale of the impact that one person can have on their community, even without intending or planning to have an impact.

This message really resonated with me personally as I come from an area (a small city) with a pretty large homeless population. I have seen firsthand the difficulty and horror of being homeless as well as the good that ministries like Crosby’s can do. As such, I have nothing but respect for Crosby and her ministry.

Lightning Round:

  • They never asked her how we could pray for her. Is it really a convo interview if that isn’t asked?
  • Can we just stop interview people after they give their message? It not only stops us from getting our of convo early (Short convo means I can nap), it just ruins the mood that the speaker created. No matter what the topic or mood is, pulling out that table and asking almost completely asinine questions will kill that momentum.
