Out and About

This morning I left Orlando and it was in the 80s. Right now, I am in Chicago and it is 5 degrees. Ugh.

From the weather service:

At 1035 PM CST...radar indicated an area of snow across the Chicago Metro area extending into much of Northwest Indiana... travel conditions will be extremely hazardous.
Blowing snow will continue to reduce visibilities to a quarter mile or less in open locations...with localized visibilities approaching zero... west winds gusting to 40 to 50 can be expected. The combination of the cold temperatures and very strong winds will produce wind chills of 20 below to 30 below zero overnight. If you must travel...allow plenty of extra time to reach your destination and exercise extreme caution.

Here's a quick recap of the week so far:

We had a good day yesterday in Orlando with the folks at Global Church Advancement. I taught on missional church planting. It was always good to get dinner with friends Steve Childers and Bart Johnson.

Early this morning, I jumped on a plane from Orlando to Chicago (where I am right now).

This is Church Planting Week at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. It also included an Acts 29 bootcamp. So, I did two sessions this afternoon. Then, we went to dinner with the Evangelical Free leadership and Trinity Faculty up at the seminary "mansion." It was a great time of dialogue about how a seminary can train church planters.

Then, Mark Driscoll, A.J. Hamilton, Scott Thomas drove off and went out for Buffalo wings. It was good to catch up with them and some other old friends... although Mark almost killed us driving back through the snow.

Tomorrow morning I catch a flight to Lynchburg to speak at Liberty University and meet with Jonathan Falwell, Ergun Caner, and Dave Early to talk about their aggressive new church planting plans.

More tomorrow about future teaching plans.
