In January, I sat down with Erik Andrews and Ray Cunningham to talk about the Appalachia Service Project. We had a great conversation about that project and why young adults from Oberlin should join (and how Erik started the trips from Oberlin). It was also a chance to reminisce with Erik about trips we each took to South Dakota as members of First Church.
Monday, Andrews joined me at First Church with high school students Henry Gardner and Rhi McKee (who have been on the ASP trip for three and two years, respectively) and Kris Carter, who started on these trips as a Fairview High School student and now helps lead them as an Oberlin resident.
Gardner and McKee are engaging young adults and have plenty to say about what they saw and what they learned.
