Got back late Saturday night. It has been a pretty busy week. There was a lot of interesting news that came from the 52nd General Council. You can check out some of the details by going to AGTALK.US or to FutureAG Blog to the Assemblies of God. Thanks for tracking here.
Oh, here’s a scripture to reflect upon that I think applies to all that was done at GC2007.
Proverbs 16:9 (NIV) 9 In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.
So I’m waiting right now for my flight home. It leaves at 4:50 (EDT) which translates to leaving at 1:50 (PDT).
I am pretty tired from the very busy week, but truly ready to get home and have fun tomorrow at our Sunday service.
Of course Sunday’s service is a “Cafe Hope” service! Come casually dressed, but be ready to worship, fellowship, and of course be inspired by the next message in our “Joy” series.
In fact, you might want to read Philippians 2 to get ready.
PLUS: Bring a dish to pass as we just hang out together after the service. We will be having a wedding reception for the newlyweds, Alli and TJ Hohm. Whether you were able to attend the actual wedding or not, we want you to hang out with us. In fact, no gift is required at all!
Thursday meeting. Election of General Superintendent. This is a glimpse of what it looked like. We were all given electronic voting keypads. The vote is still pending until they reconvene at 9:00 AM on Friday morning. You can follow my live blogging at AGTALK.US.

I took a quick break and toured the Indy 500 today. They said we could “Kiss the Bricks” — so I did. At 106 degree air temp you can imagine how my lips feel!!
I’m all registered. There are THOUSANDS here! The talk of everyone is that the next 2 days will be over 100 degrees — 100 sticky and humid degrees!! 😉
This afternoon I am going to try to get to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for an hour or two. Then everything starts at 7 tonight. Leadership Seminars are on tap — a general session and 2 break-outs.
The other place to track me is at a site I made called AGTALK.US … you may want to check out the “live blogging and streaming” that I will attempt.
In a few minutes I will be heading to register and hopefully find a few friends.
On my ride to the hotel I rode with Dave and Sherry Harrison who are Missionaries coming from the Northwest District (Washington). They work with ethnic and inter-cultural churches.
We support Russ Peavey in the Northern California/Nevada District … he does the same things here.
I’m all packed up and ready to go to Indy. Gotta wake up at 4:15 AM on Monday morning, then take BART to the SFO Airport. Check out AGTALK.US for continuous updates during Assembly’s General Council 2007!
