The Apologetics Mega Conference, our major summer teaching conference, was held last week. It was such a treat to spent time with all the AiG supporters who came to the event. Over 800 people attended the sessions, which generally lasted from 9 AM until 9 PM. Built into the schedule was also time for two visits to the museum, and most of the attendees took the opportunity to visit.
It was an honor to get reacquainted with many of the people I have met during my travels over the past six years. Even if I could not always put a name with them, I recognized many faces, both young and old. Unfortunately for me, many of those I met as children are now grown, and the adults I met are now older (and some, like me, are grayer). Time does slip away.
One young lady told me that she remembered my conference at her church because my talks not only encouraged her, but they made her laugh. She said that too many of the special speakers at her church “take themselves too seriously.”
The best compliment I got during the conference came from a young man who came up to me and said, “Hey, you’re the Mac guy!” Obviously, he was paying attention when I spoke at his church.
Our audiovisual team was there throughout the conference, and we had the chance to record most of the presentations. My talk, “Why Can’t a Day Mean a Day?” was recorded and hopefully will be available in a few months.
More later . . .
