I'm in Atlanta! My first conference in almost a year and a half. I'm excited and looking forward to learning something!
I'm here with my boss, the Rev. Dr. Jo Hudson, Senior Pastor of the Cathedral of Hope in Dallas. We are attending the Festival of Homiletics. I get to hear preachers all week!
I'm actually quite thrilled. I've always been jealous as my pastors went off to these sorts of things, and am glad that now I get to!
This week I'll get to hear some of the premiere pulpiteers of our times: Barbara Brown Taylor, Thomas Long, Peter Gomes, Barbara Lundblad, James Forbes, Will Willimon, Roberta Bondi, etc. I'll try to keep you posted on all the excitement.
