"Jubilation" An Older Adult Event In Kingsport, Tn. April 22-23, 2013
Jubilation will be held this year on April 21st-23rd at the Meadowview Convention Center in Kingsport, Tn. The theme for Jubilation 2013 is “Grace and Gratitude.” John Wesley’s formula for Christian living was: “Earn all you can ... Save all you can ... Give all you can.” He invites us to a Christ-centered life delighting in God’s abundant, freely given grace which moves us to respond to these gifts of grace with a life of gratitude.
The Keynote speaker this year is the Rev. Ed Kilbourne Singer, Storyteller, and Folk-Theologian
Considered by many to be the Garrison Keillor of the United Methodist Church, Ed is widely known and appreciated for his ability to combine music and spiritual teaching in worship and concert settings. He grew up in the Orient where his parents served as missionaries. After college and seminary he moved to Atlanta to begin his career as a United Methodist minister. As his gifts for teaching and performing became more widely known, he began to tour the country as a musician and spiritual resource person. Ed has now recorded 23 albums and made over 8,000 concert appearances throughout the country. Various workshops and worship opportunities will be offered throughout the week. DOWNLOAD BROCHURE
