NYWC 2007 St. Louis: Day 1

Topic / Training

After a long and tiring drive yesterday, we finally arrived late last night. Unfortunately, our hotel bed isn’t that comfortable and the rooms around us are noisy, but at least it’s a place to lie down for a couple hours each night.

I met Mike of Reflection Ministry blog and also ran into a couple other people I don’t know who read this blog. It cracks me up when that happens because I still can’t believe people actually read this stuff. One guy tried to coax me into selling the resources I currently make available for free and gave me his whole plan for how I could make lots of money off it, but don’t worry, I didn’t start this blog to make money and I have no intention on ever changing that. I just want to do whatever I can to help build up the Kingdom, not get rich off other people’s ministry budgets (or the lack thereof).

Attached below are my notes from a seminar I attended, “Resuscitating Sunday School: If you have to do it, you might as well do it right,” by Marv Penner. I recorded the audio on my Mac, too, but I’m waiting for permission to see if I can make that available to you all or not. Guess we’ll find out.

My wife took some pictures during the general sessions, but I’ll get them up later. It’s late, I’m tired and I’m getting up early for an 8:00 AM seminar.
