John,
I plan to be there. Hopefully Dean Ohlman, an older guy from RBC Ministries who is a great guy and an intellectual really, and was just enthused over reading Brian McLaren's new book, hopefully he'll be there, too, though I'm not sure.

Looking forward to it.

he's older, but really not much older than I. everyone's getting younger, which I guess is one nice part of getting older.

John,
That was a great evening. The people there got a certain view which shows the strengths of as well as legitimate concerns others have concerning "the emergent conversation" and "emerging churches".

Your thoughts were helpful and I thought along with the other participants, there was a nice balance and dynamic going on, which almost took the pain away from my seat and weariness from my body which I had towards the end of that two and a half hours of nonstop sitting and hearing you folks.

Anyhow while it was largely not new to me, I came away with a renewed and refreshed appreciation for what is going on today among so many churches and Christians who want to live out the faith in a way more faithful to the story we find in Scripture.

Thanks for your great participation in this last evening and ongoing.
