I kid you not. I logged in last night with every intention of giving myself a great gift and there it was. A Comment. I think I even heard an angel choir singing background to the soft glow of my laptop. It was a beautiful moment.
Honestly, I was a little envious of the guy who just got my $5 Starbucks gift card. But mostly I am grateful. Make sure you read Earl's comment as he makes some excellent points and asks me a really important question. And, if you can stand more of my thoughts, make sure you read my comment back.
While you're at it, go over to his site. His latest post on The Dark Knight is the first I've read from that perspective. Good stuff. (and maybe with all this link love I could just keep the gift card and call it a day).
I'm getting ready to post notes and thoughts from the next session. You won't want to miss Eugene Peterson's talk. I went to Austin feeling a deep respect for the man and that respect was confirmed, but in the most surprising of ways.
