Public Sin and Christ's Cry

My journey with advocacy in the Christian Reformed Church began in the youth room of Meadowlands Fellowship CRC a couple of years ago. Although I was not in high school anymore, Rev. Syd Hielema had invited me to take part in the youth group events that night. When I arrived I discovered that the night’s activities would be centered around the KAIROS Blanket Exercise, which was being led by Ryan Geleynse and Danielle Steenwyk-Rowaan.
