I feel I’ve let everyone down today, and must apologize for being so late in posting anything. People have begun second-guessing what I post on this anniversary, and the last week or so I’ve just been so busy that I didn’t manage to get a post together until now. I’ve been giving advice to Joel Osteen about his plans for a new video venue. We’ve been looking at the new holographic technology, but there’s a great concern that the hologram won’t be able to credibly shake people’s hands after the message. As a result, we’ve been negotiating with Tim Allen’s people about having Mr. Allen stand in for Joel at the new venue. We’ve reached an agreement on the hair dye, but Mr. Allen is balking at Joel’s demand for a wee bit of surgical tweaking of the nose. Will try to keep you posted. These show-biz types can be pretty demanding, so negotiations have been no picnic, let me tell you.
I haven’t done a personal update in a while, but I wanted to do this one since it involves a big step toward a longtime dream. We’ve been friends of Rob and Wendy McAlpine for nigh past two decades now, and off and on over that time we’ve always talked about ministry opportunities together… “someday.” And it looks like “someday” is finally arriving! Starting in a few months, we’ll be starting a new work together in Medicine Hat, Alberta!
