I'm off in the morning to Los Angeles. Only this time to attend a conference that I signed up for last January - back when I thought that I never had any commitments right after Thanksgiving! It is a large, high level evangelical Congress on global evangelism called Call2All that is being held at the Long Beach convention center. I haven't spent time in this sort of environment since I became Catholic so I expect to be challenged and experience a bit of culture shock. I'm going with a friend and collaborator who is also bi-cultural (former Baptist). Even with the book looming over me, this should be fun and a real learning experience.

For instance, they have a whole track about something that Catholics NEVER talk about: Orality. What they mean by that is that 70% of the world population learns primarily through oral means rather than written means - even if they are literate. In fact, they have a category called "secondary orality" by which they mean literate westerners - even college grads - who are still oral learners in their hearts and never read a book again willingly once they have finished school. As they point out, these people need to be evangelized and discipled differently but almost all the methods used by evangelists currently are those of people who learn through written materials. So solar powered audio Bibles, anyone? Creative story-telling, etc. Very interesting. I'll post more as the week goes on.

If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
