It has been an incredibly busy and productive 2009 thus far, so too much space between blog posts. Some things had to settle.
Yes, I am working part time with the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. I'll tell that story later.
Last evening was the kick-off of the Evangelism conference. Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder were great (he is a Baptists described by friends in his church as "the real deal"); speakers were Robert Jeffress and Jerry Vines, and Charles Billingsley led worship. This man is so very gifted and were led into the presence of God. About 3,000 in attendance and a warmth of Christian spirit I have not sensed in a large Baptist meeting in many, many, way tooooo many years. Lots of connections with old friends who actually care.
I'm reminded of what a friend of mine once related as the best advice he had ever gotten: "Find a hole and fish." I'm fishing again and it is just great. Thank God for grace and good friends who loved in spite of differences. Others talk about it, these folks live it. I'll blog about that some day as well.
So, it is early and I have a long day. You have a good one.
