October 2009 — We just returned from an inspiring weekend at the “Rocky Mountain Rendezvous” held October 2–4th at Sonnenalp Resort in Vail, hosted by Alive’s Rick and Debbie Christian, in partnership with friends Peb and Sharon Jackson and the Trinity Forum. Over 150 attended the event with Alive author and The Message translator Eugene Peterson, Philip Yancey, and award-winning singer-songwriter Fernando Ortega. Peterson gave five talks, drawing on themes from his new book The Jesus Way, each of which were followed by spirited conversation with Yancey and participants. Ortega also staged a private concert for attendees. — RC
