Highlights of the Day (at the Festival of Homiletics)

  • taking the 18 Bus downtown (I haven't done that in years); remembering that the first time I took the 18, I got on by mistake (I thought it was a 17) and got lost!
  • listening to Thomas Long's sermon and not taking notes, just listening
  • hearing Anna Carter Florence talk about preaching as "inviting listeners to live in the world in a new way"
  • eating lunch at Jerusalem restaurant
  • meeting Possible Water, InnerDorothy, StCasserole, Cheesehead, Mags, Pink Shoes, Against a Brick Wall, and many others (linking later, I'm too tired....) Also, it's possible that names will be added later
  • Possible Water's joke: "What did the 0 say to the 8?" "Nice belt!"

Sounds like you are enjoying the festival. I wish more pastors would take time out for such events.
