Ed Pettibone on Trudy's computer

I spent about 4 and a half hours in a small group discussion on communications, There was not a lot new but found here are a lot of ABC-USA folk to get along with.

Following the afternoon session, Trudy and I went to a wonderful Steak house here in Overland Park to celebrate her birthday.
Perhaps the best steak that I have ever had. Well maybe it only tied with St Elmo's in Indianapolis. 8)

We Are going back to the convention Center for a worship Session this evening.

I did meet with EHart and her son this afternoon and they attended the same session on "The Small Church" that Trudy was in.

Ed: For a closer look although still an overview, Go To http://missionsummitconversations.com/

The more information or (Click here) links which lead to a summary of what has been said in each group. (Some are done better than others) most are overly brief.

I had a good time at my first biennial. My son started out tired and was exhausted by the time the Small Congregation conversation was over so we bugged out for a while to my cousin's house then returned for a fabulous worship service!

I was very glad to finally meet Ed and Trudy. And Trudy, happy belated birthday!

Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the next one as I just realized it will be during the same time frame as my (and my husband and sons') high school all-school reunion. I am quite displeased about that but life happens.

That happened to me this year with an event I wanted to attend for the Order of Saint Luke. It came on the same weekend as CROP Walk at my church and I just couldn't miss CROP Walk.
