I spent the afternoon and evening attending a Promise Keepers thing down the road. I went for two main reasons: (a) I got in free (pastor’s perk – yes, I’m cheap) and (b) Erwin McManus is there. Tonight I realized how much I love Erwin McManus. I love almost everything that he says. I also really appreciate Robin Mark as a worship leader. But I also realized there’s no possible way that I can sit through another day at a Christian conference. Anybody else ever feel that way? I just don’t have it in me. So I seized my divine moment and left. Here’s my change of plans. Christina loves the Royal Winter Fair, which ends this weekend, and Charlene has been complaining that we haven’t spent enough time together lately. Tomorrow I’m going to surprise them and take them there instead. (Good thing Christina doesn’t read this blog.) It seems funny to be going to a Promise Keepers thing at the expense of my family anyway. After all, I can always order the CDs of Erwin. Never thought I’d see the day that I’d trade Erwin for a bunch of farm animals. Oh yeah, and my family. That’s the point.
