Last week held the standard ministry events: Sunday School class, meeting with our pastor, Bible study, Leadership Development course, administrative work. The big highlight was the Mid-Atlantic student training conference on Saturday. We began at 8:00 AM, so I drove to Newark, Delaware on Friday. Good thing. An Amazon Prime tractor trailer was stranded in the right lane of the Interstate, which turned a 2-hour trip into 3½ hours. Four tracks were offered, and I taught Knowing and Growing in Grace, a course on the basics of the Christian life. I got home at 10:30 PM and was grateful for the extra hour to get my Sunday School lesson ready for this morning.
It was a very good weekend. In spite of the very early morning and the very long day, the students were impressively attentive. It has been a big challenge for campus ministers to resume regular ministry after a year on Zoom. So having over 50 students at this conference was a real success!
This week I need to send a newsletter to the printer and prepare a sermon for next Sunday.
