I'm in Atlanta this weekend for the final Regional Renovare Conference. It's been an historic weekend with tributes, story-telling and even some dancing. I have video of the whole team from the conference and from Renovare dancing to "Righteous, Peace, Joy in the Holy Ghost." I'm going to save it for when I really need it.
As one person said, it's the last event until the next event, which is in October, but it was the last Regional conference. It was such a great time of reminiscing and really spending time with folks, some of whom I know well, and some I didn't. These folks are hilarious. Here are a couple of quotes:
L: You know those pillars in front of the church? They're not real. They're made of styrofoam. I leaned on one and almost knocked it over. I felt like Samson.
We were at Fat Matt's sitting outside when a dude on a chopper came by and kept revving it - it was REALLY loud. Person from Britain says:
C: We know you've got a big MOTORBIKE! Move your issues!
C also refused to pick up the ribs with his hands - "too barbaric" he said. Then when the pecan pie arrived: "It's as though you made a pastry and then sneezed into it." But then he ate the better part of both pieces, so I think he liked it fine.
