How bummed i am that i cant be there. As you know, i was supposed to give a few seminars entitled “Forward Slash” -a 2-part series that dealt with ministry in a new media world. As it turned out, there was an accidental “slash” of my hand and i am all stitched up and unable to travel. At least you will get to meet Jonny Baker, who just VJ’ed a seminar at Grace Cathedral (San Francisco). Jonny’s seminars are on the same time as mine were and I was feeling bad that some people would have to choose.
Those of you from England can hear “Forward Slash” in London at an event called Blah, May 25th. You can also read some material that i will post soon here.
David Crowder is leading worship and you should look out for VJ Travis also. Many of my friends are speaking – cant list them all, but if you want to meet some of them, then look out for Spencer Burke of The Ooze, Mark Miller, Joe Myers, Tim Conder Dan Kimball, Tim Keel Tony Jones, Doug Pagitt (who features in my article “Buffy The Backside Slayer“), Holly Rankin Zaher, Mark Scandrette (who i talked into coming to San Francisco in 1998) and Chris Seay (who talked me into coming to Austin in 1998), Brian MacLaren, Alan Roxburgh
There were also some guys that i was looking forward to meeting – Brennan Manning, Robert Webber and Dave Tomlinson, who i should have met by now since he also lives in London.
Especially Brennan Manning. Dang it! I’m going to miss out on meeting Brennan Manning. Brennan Almighty. Dangit. Once we were driving through New Orleans and we thought of stopping in and seeing him. But we figured he would be too busy to see us, him being famous, and us being peons. but hey – you guys will get to meet him in person. The Great and Humble Brennan Manning.
Am I rambling?
Lots of bloggers will be there in Nashiville – who has a long list of them???????
