David's comings and goings in 2012
February 5 -- Preaching at All Angels Church in New York City.
February 17-19 -- Giving three talks in Topeka, Kansas, for an arts festival sponsored by five churches, which on that fact alone deserves a hearty hoorah.
Laity Lodge retreat for ministers to artists, in the middle of perfectly nowhere in Central Texas. Also speaking will be Charlie Peacock, Andi Ashworth, Ginger Geyer and Sandra Organ-Solis. A musician, a hospitality maven, a visual artist and a contemporary ballerina and me.
March 6-8 -- Giving a plenary talk at the Anglican 1000 Church Planting Summit in Dallas, Texas. The fact that I'll be sharing the stage with Scot McKnight, Archbishop Robert Duncan, Mike Breen and David Roseberry only makes this a sweeter deal.
March 22-29 -- Giving a paper (Lord-willing) at the Society for the Study of Theology's annual conference in York, England.
May - June -- Studying Latin in Durham, North Carolina. This isn't geographic travel but it will involve travel across time, to the land of dead languages. Ecce beatus homo, or something like that.
July -- Travel to the mothership, Austin, Texas.
September 22 -- Giving a plenary talk in Wenham, Massachusetts, at an event sponsored by Gordon College, Gordon-Conwell Seminary and CIVA. The day event will explore the dynamic between the church and the visual arts. The tentative title of my talk is "The Problem of Sight and the Possibility of a Re-formed Vision."
Brehm Lectures, which this conference will constitute. Mark Labberton is coordinating. Details to come.
Other things are in the works. Stay tuned.
