Living on Tulsa Time – Day 2

Today was a good day ended by a great meal, worship, and a fine message from Rick Atchely, preacher at North Richland Hills church in NRH, Texas.

This morning I visited the booths, most of which were not yet occupied. Tomorrow there will be books, bloggers, bracelets and Bibles, singers and schools, ministries and merchants, healthy chocolate, and even a Pentecostal guy who sells real estate, all pushing their wares.

At lunch I joined a caravan of cars supposedly en route to great Mexican cuisine. When we finally arrived I could hardly believe my eyes when the sign said “Pancho’s”. Not to be a party pooper I scarfed down a plate food and several sopaipillas. I had honey all over both hands and the table. Nice!

This afternoon Ken Bolden and I ate a great meal at Memorial Drive church where I had a nice greeting from Edward Fudge. It was very good to finally meet this good man and great Bible teacher. We experienced a great time of praise and worship (longer than planned because of plane delays for Rick Atchley) and a great message from Bro’ Atchely about the “Idol of control”. He is a great communicator and I enjoyed and was challenged by his message.

Tomorrow I am looking forward to some other great speakers and more great fellowship. I am especially looking forward to John Dobbs and Trey Morgan’s presentation about blogging.

More tomorrow,

Living on Tulsa Time…

tuksss1It is exactly 7:00 p.m. and I am comfortably settled into my room here in Tulsa, OK. I am anticipating a great few days of fellowship, worship, and visiting with friends old and new.

I drove up with my friend John Grigson and we had a great several hour visit. John is doing an amazing prison ministry through Celebrate Recovery Inside. In Monroe, John and some helpers are taking hope and recovery to men who are locked away both in jail and in sin. John has a wonderful story of his own recovery and is now reaching out to others caught in similar circumstances. Our fellowship was rich and very enjoyable. I have often referred to John as a trophy of God’s grace.

We towed a trailer loaded with World Radio stuff and followed our friend and brother Ken Bolden’s motor home the long trek from Monroe to Tulsa. Ken works for World Radio getting the good news out the world over. Ken and others will man with World Radio booth here at the Tulsa Workshop. There will be several folks from our church, White’s Ferry Road in West Monroe, LA here for the rest of the week.

This is my first visit to this coC Mecca of sorts. I have wanted to attend but this is my first opportunity to do so. I hope to meet some of my readers and fellow bloggers. I’ll likely give a daily update on what has impressed me as the week progresses.

His peace,
