In Richmond, Virginia

I arrived in Richmond, Virginia last night. Very tired after a long trip. Thanks to Shannon and Bea for the coffee in London yesterday at Heathrow and for coming out to pray for me – much appreciated!!! Things went really smoothly.

This is my third time in Virginia. The first time I came here on a mission ship – MV Logos – in 1996. The second time was 1999 – our whole family drove through Virginia in our Winnebago on the way up north. Richmond has an alternative pocket around the university – good arts program here and it attracts some of our tribe.

So, I am chilling at the Holiday Inn today – working on my presentation, eating well, and trying out the pool. More soon

  • My brother! You are only a state away from me! hmmmmmmmmmmmm – I’m trying to see if I can feel your presence – hhmmmmmmmmmm, nope, crap. Peace to you in the capital of the confederacy.

  • TSK,
    I frequent the blog several times a week.
    I have a friend who is moving to Richmond, VA.
    Any emergent churches in the Richmond area that you can recommend for me to send along to my friend?
    thanks

    there is not really any one church that i would recommend, and the right church for him might end up being quite old fashioned (who knows what God wants) but if he wants to join with others in ministering in the emerging culture, then I would suggest he does what i do . .
    go into the craziest coffee shop in town, the one with all the flyers for clubs and posters on the wall, and geeks at tables with their laptops, and ask the person pouring coffee behind the bar who you should talk to if you want to follow Jesus.
    and then follow the trail – it might lead to a group that is off the radar and might not yet be a church, but they are in the right place.
    let me know if he finds anything . .
