I’m really jazzed about you guys being here in my area! I’ll see you this afternoon…add me to the list when you catch your breath, bro.

tom, added you to the list, and read your post today (tried to comment, but couldn’t figure out how). but, dude, if you’re going to hang with mike yaconelli — as your post says — please let me know where. i’d love to come by and see him (since, uh, he died three years ago).

Um, 2 seconds ago I saw a picture of “matthew” on the hotmail ad section, and then found his name here. That’s so weird. ANyway, he looks fantastic. It’s such a drastic change!!!

Hmmm, I might blog from the NYWC… or I might not. I’ll do whatever is conducive to making this weekend useful and productive. If writing my thoughts down will be beneficial to me and my ministry, I will. But I could also see myself taking the time that would be spent writing and talking with other people about some of the things that I’m sure will be running through my head. So I don’t know for sure if I will or not.

Okay, my prediction was wrong … Marko totally recognized me. It took him a second, but he knew who I was! lol He’s the man!

We’ve never met Marko, but you did touch my shoulder the other night while I was playing some Guitar Hero. Anyway, I’m blogging from NYWC also.

I’m blogging, even as you speak! Good stuff on change, and on church/leadership health. Thanks for sharing your story and helping us envision health in our own situations.
