I feel spent.  I’ve been working on the Consumerism Conference for the past year almost and now it is done.  I am generally pleased with how things went.  We should have presentations up in mp3 format in the near future…I’ll keep you posted.

I enjoyed having Kevin Rains as a guest in my home for this weekend.  My conversations with him outside of the conference were deeply encouraging.  I was a bit too busy during the conference, so I didn’t get to catch as much of the sessions as I would have hoped.  From what I caught, I have to say that I was impressed with each of our main presenters: Vincent Miller, Ron Sider, Rodney Clapp, and Sondra Wheeler.  I learned a lot from each of them.

Thanks to everyone who joined us this weekend–whether you came from the UK or from the Twin Cities (or anything in between).  I hope and pray that the conference will be used as a tool in the hands of our Lord for your growth and for the blessing of your neighbors.

    Yeah, dude. I’m spent too. You did a great job at pulling everything together. Now I’m wondering what will become of us now that this conference isn’t binding us together in holy bliss.

    Thanks, Mark, for all of your hard work in pulling this conference together. It was a real honor to be a part of it. I may meet you all tomorrow night at the pub for the Atheist conversation.
