National Pastors Convention

Last week Kim and I attended the National Pastors Convention in San Diego. She came a day late because she got sick on Monday, but she made it out in time for a couple of days of inspiration and encouragement. Brian McLaren, Rob Bell, and Christopher Wright made the event meaningful.

The high watermark of the speakers was Paul Young, the author of The Shack. To know is personal story that led to him to write the story for his children is to understand why the story has captured the heart of so many. Some of that story is here. You can also hear those who fear it's message at the same site.

We got out some and saw the sun set on Torrey Pines Beach, and the next day we walked down Mission Beach. It was cloudy and cold, but still the beach.

Along the way on Mission Beach, a young girl on a bike waved and said hey. Kim said, "What a friendly girl." A few moments later the Walpoles rolled up on bikes! They were there for Courtney's hockey tournament. Small world.

The highligh…
