Wifi was severely limited Limited at the conference so no live blogging – plus I didn’t bring my laptop around with me for the first time in my life… the iPod touch did just fine.

This isn’t really a recap, I can’t sum up my thoughts well at the moment, other than it was very good.

Two images that stuck with me… below is the bucket of cash collected for a pastor who was fired in the middle of the conference – just for attending it.

cash donated to fired pastor

This is a biking video that was shown that I think depicts the beauty that can be created with just about any art-form taken seriously, including preaching.

    Why would someone be fired for attending? Was it controversial?

    "Preaching as an art form" – thank you, I like that.

    Hey Joel – i have no clue… i definitely didn't think it was controversial… but sometimes assumptions and fears can cause people to behave erratically… very sad.
