Just a few more pictures, and some links to some new friends. One issue discussed at the convention was the importance of community — blogging provides both possibilities. . . and limitations . . . for furthering vital connections among people.
You can make some really terrific friends through blogging, without ever meeting in person, because the relationship is forged through common interests. (Or at least friendly disagreement!) But it is still nice to meet the old-fashioned way: in real life!
So, here are a few more of the fun folks I enjoyed meeting — take a minute to stop by and say hello to them.
Christy Lynn Wilson
This is Christy Lynn Wilson, PR Director for the DeMoss Group, who also blogs at B Relevant. Christy is working right now on promoting a program that will air on PBS in February/March called “Walking the Bible.” She says it will be good; I’ll let you know after I preview the DVD she’s going to send me!
I love this view of the patio where everyone was hanging out, listening to Hugh Hewitt’s show on the loudspeakers, and catching up on blogging in the gorgeous 90 degree California sunshine!
Meeting Stacy Harp
Here’s my baby listening to Hugh’s live broadcast. She took a lot of these pics. She’s going to be launching a blog, Saltwater Indigo, as soon as her mother gets it together and gets the tech details working.
This is Dr. Andrew Jackson during the plenary session with David and Joe. Andy is a pastor who founded SmartChristian.com and also blogs there. He’s got a fantastic round-up of blog reax to the convention.
And this is Peter Shinn who heads up the March Together against abortion. He also got my email working — thanks Peter! That’s bloggers for you.
