Hey, everyone! Gerard here. I’m up in Bethlehem, PA (the cradle of UMC’s very existence) for Musikfest, the nation’s largest free, non-gated music festival. I’m throwing it back with my northern work family and pitching in with this year’s festival, which means you’re going to see some guest contributions here over the next week and a half.
