This is ANOTHER guest post! :D

Hey, ya'll!
It's E. and Mom, along with assorted family and friends has asked me (forced me) to do a blog post about this past weekend.
While Mom and K. were visiting Camp La Vida, my team and I were not half a mile away at White Oak Conference Center for Creative Ministries Festival. First, let me explain a few things so no one's left in the dark.
1. For those who don't know, Creative Ministries Festival is a conference held each year in various places in SC. Funded and hosted by the Southern Baptist Convention, it boasts several ministry classes, such as clowning, drama, puppetry, and Interpretive Movement (my personal favorite).
2. Interp is a combination of dance, sign language, and drama, performed to music. Anyone who knows me will agree that Interp is a passion of mine. I have been doing it for 3 or 4 years now, and have shown no signs of stopping. Interp is a beautiful form of worship and in my opinion, anyone who has not seen or participated in it has truly missed out on a blessing. That's me and most of my team in the picture. Yours Truly is the one in the middle. There are currently 6-10 girls in my team and 2 leaders (though we did have two guys participate in one song, we're trying to get them to do another). At Creative Ministries we learned several songs. Two of which we will be performing in the near future: Worthy is the Lamb by Hillsong, and Shine by David Crowder Band (both wonderful songs).
I'll shut up about Interp for now (though if anyone has questions, I'll be happy to oblige), and shove on.
Creative Ministries was not all jumping from one class to the next. We also had a devotion and worship time. Very worship...ful... :D
For those few truly creative people in the world (or people like me who are fooling themselves but worship anyway) Creative Ministries is a wonderful, worshipful conference to attend, and I highly recommend going, you won't regret it!
Well it's almost time for supper, and it's pizza night, so I gotta dash.
Later Days you crazy bloggers!

Oh, yay! I told your mom when I spoke to her that I wanted to hear all about it. I'm glad my plea made you go ahead and do it!! =) (We'll pretend anyway!) Sounds like you enjoyed it. Now, you'll have to shoot a video of you and your crew performing one of those songs and post it here on your mom's blog. I'll be waiting......................

Wonderful post Em. I've only seen video of your team interpreting a song but I do want to see it in person. I'm so proud of how you put your whole heart and whole self into this beautiful expression of worshiping God. Love, Mimi.

Nice post. I'm thinking I like the "guest posters" better than the usual columnist. Just my opinion. LOL

I think I like the guest posters better, too :). Maybe I'll just turn the blog over to my peeps? Or to my brother?
