Last day of the Zoe Conference. I'm worn out, but it's going to be a great day. Big gatherings this morning and this evening, amazing classes throughout the day, and a Michael Card concert at 1:00. I enjoyed putting faces to names of lots of members of this blog community the past couple days. We've had funny stories about the "Amy Grant" who posts here -- who is neither the person married to Vince Gill nor my friend from Highland (Amy) who is married to Grant. I was glad to meet THE REAL Amy Grant yesterday (the one who leaves wonderful notes here occasionally). Donna Hester's piece about Eve, Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary was incredible. I just wish the video camera had been a bit closer so people back in the corners (1200 in that building is FULL) could see a bit better. But they saw well enough to be stirred by the story of God's persistent love through the centuries, as told through the stories of these women. - - - - The cool front hit Nashville yesterday, and I'm in heaven. The hills of Tennessee and cool weather. - - - - Randy Johnson is loved in New York -- as long as he does well. . . which he didn't yesterday, so he was booed. The $203-million-dollar boys are one game from elimination. Come on, Angels! (Note: you may remember the bet I have with Joe Hays. So Joe, please get space ready on your blog for my trash-talking.) The Padres should bow out today, which would make them, I think, a game under .500 for the year. But much thanks for keeping my Cards tuned up.
