Catching My Breath . . .

By Mark D. Roberts | Friday, July 18, 2008

Thanks for all of your helpful, encouraging, and challenging comments on my recent posts on the PCUSA crisis. I have more to add to that series, but need to catch my breath. Right now I’m helping to facilitate a conference at Laity Lodge (my day job!).  We are blessed to have some wonderful resource people for this retreat, including: Dr. J.I. Packer (theologian; Regent College); Dr. Terry Hargrave (professor; Fuller Seminary; counselor); Charles Webb (pianist; retired dean of Indiana Univ. School of Music).

At Charles’s urging, we invited a 19-year-old violinist, Esther Kim. She is an amazing artist and musician, and a sweet human being as well. Esther has won lots of international awards for her artistry, and adds a magical touch to our retreat. For more about Esther, check out her website. And for a real treat, watch this YouTube clip of Esther when she was only 13 years old. Amazing!

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
