Na Day One [EDITED]

,

EDIT: There was no wifi available at the convention center, so the “live-blogging” never materialized. For a full account of the conference, check out the New Attitude blog. Here I am, writing from the backseat of a borrowed mini-van heading down the highway towards the Nettles home in Louisville, Kentucky. Day One of the 2007…



Safely in Louisville

I received a phone call 30 minutes ago that Jerry Falwell has died. Don’t you believe it! He is more alive right now than he has ever been. He left “the land of the dying” and entered the “land of the living.” That is the way that he would see it, and all of us…
