turned in two book manuscripts on monday.
both kids started a trial week at a private school this week.
got about 400 – 500 emails today due to the zondervan acquisition announcement. answered every one of them.
delayed flights got me into grand rapids at 3am today. then, after the all staff meeting at Z, i flew on to DC for the youth ministry exec council (hosted by national network of youth ministries). tomorrow morning, i’m to give a five minute (!!) talk on “the world in 10 years”.
fly home tomorrow night — lots of stuff to deal with in the office on thursday.
fly to salt lake city friday to speak at an area-wide all-nighter.
fly home saturday for my own church’s one life revolution variety show fundraiser (for orphans in africa), which i’m emceeing.
maybe that’s why it’s still hard to get a half-dozen emails that accuse me/us of “selling out”, amidst the hundreds of wonderful and positive responses. seeing this blog post tonite really took the wind out of me.
