I had a great day in Dallas. I am sitting in the airport right now hoping to make it out before the storm roles in.

Well... not tonight... American Airlines has cancelled the flight and there is no other flight to get there tonight. So, tomorrow, at 6a.m. we try again. Sigh.

I look forward to being with the people at Dallas Theological Seminary. They ...

Larry McCrary is a dear friend who has been involved church planting in the United States and in Europe. There are few who have planted on two continents so his comments are worth hearing. I asked him to tell me about missiology in Western Europe and he wrote:

Looking forward to this Sunday. Talking about church in Los Angelels is nice. But, God has chosen the church to make known his manifold wisdom in the World (Eph. 3:10).
