Camping and Unplugging

Tomorrow, I’m headed off to sunny California, where I’ll be speaking at a camp for Middle Schoolers.  I was invited by my dear friend Kyle Sapp, who is probably the funniest person I know.  I’ll be telling the story and presenting some thoughts from Hinds Feet on High Places.

I couldn’t be more excited.  I went to camp for 9 summers years growing up, and still look back at it as a key to my personal and spiritual formation.

While there, I’m going to do my best to unplug.  That means no Facebook, Twitter or even reading blogs.  If you really need to get ahold of me, you probably have my number or email.  I may, however, schedule a post or two to keep my Mom and my other two readers satisfied.

I’m hoping a little time out of the matrix will provide a little detox, and help me get my thoughts in order for what is sure to be a wild fall.

See you in a week!
