I expect to post ruminations about the Conference on the Holy Spirit in a week or so. Regretably, I missed a good bit of the conference. I hope to see video and catch up with everyone else before commenting in detail. I greatly enjoyed getting to meet everyone, although I feel sharply the regret of having virtually no time to devote to the informal interaction of the presenters. I met for the first time (corporeally) Alan Cross, Wade Burleson, Debbie Kaufmann, Bob Cleveland, Sam Storms, Boyd Luter, Jack Maddox, and a whole host of others. Robin Foster and I renewed a long dormant relationship. Ben Cole and Dwight McKissic I had met once, and the continued interaction was delightful. As to my presentation, I will let others evaluate it. I always walk away wishing I had done better. After hearing the registration numbers, I was surprised at how few people were there. Word must have gotten out that I was presenting. I'll let Robin Foster tell about what happened to him last night. I missed it, and that is one huge regret of mine! :-) At the conclusion of this experience, I walk away profoundly aware of how undeniably and unchangeably white, stodgy, and Baptist I am (none of those adjectives is meant as synonymous with any of the others). Enough froth…I'll give some substance later.
