Hello, does anyone know when the 2020 BTLI session will happen? I went to Princeton website, I did not see anything posted. Thanks for any information that you can provide.
Hi, are the 2019 BTLI applications available yet?
Greetings Family, I hope this message reaches you in good spirits. My name is Jasclyn and I am a senior M.Div student at PTS. I also work with Sushama, the founder of BTLI here at PTS. My purpose for contacting you all is to give a reminder to REGISTER for 2017 BTLI (FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS)!!! This will be an exciting time as we celebrate the 5th Reunion of this conference. Be sure to visit our website and make plans to join us once again this year!
Charleena Lyles: Pregnant and gunned down by 2 (two) Seattle Police. They had tasers, but they chose guns since the PD says, "This woman who is allegedly mentally ill, had a knife." Meanwhile, 2 escaped GA felons are re-arrested unharmed after they allegedly killed two guards to escape. Seattle PD has been under a federal consent degree since 2012 for engaging in "an unconstitutional pattern or practice of excessive force." #YallStillJustDoingPraiseandWorship? #lWeKnowTheVerdict #BeSaneBeAngry
