January 2 nd 2009

Comment's favourite student conference is just around the corner. Jubilee 2009 in Pittsburgh, Penn. will feature Andy Crouch (Culture Making), Jessica Jackley Flannery (Kiva), Leroy Barber (Mission Year), Gabe Lyons (Fermi Project), David Kinnaman (Barna Research), Tom & Christine Sine (Mustard Seed Associates), Mike Goheen (The Drama of Scripture), Lauren Winner (Real Sex), Bill Edgar (Heaven in a Nightclub), and about two dozen more speakers, plus worship, workshopping, and worldviewing like you've never seen. We made up that last word. And, of course, Comment will be there in force, with an unprecedented three staffers attending, including new associate editor Alissa Wilkinson!

. . . Also, Comment editor Gideon Strauss recommends the following online radio programmes of which he has grown fond during 2008: WNYC's Ear to Ear; American Public Media's Saint Paul Sunday with host Bill McGlauchlin; and NPR's All Songs Considered with host Bob Boilen.
