What I Dithcovered in Theattle: The Latht Entry

I'm in Seattle for the New Conspirators Conference. Here's round four of what I learned.

* Jesus wants to know whether I am a sheep or a goat.
* You'd be hard pressed to find a cul de sac in the suburbs called Martin Luther King Court or Malcolm X Way. (Efrem Smith)
* The beloved church is a loving, abiding, confessing, perfecting church. (Efrem Smith)
* If you keep the beginning and the ending of your worship service the same, most congregations will let you do what you want with the middle. (Mark Pierson)
* Software, not hardware, is the key to the future.
* I can browse the same books at the same bookstore over and over and over again without getting bored.
* I'm not a very competitive person largely because when I compete, I lose.
* Mark Scandrette is the coolest guy in the room, regardless of the room.
* The game of "Rabbit" does not favor travelers or residents of the west coast.
* Kimberlee Conway Ireton writes a killer book and cooks a killer souffle. (Keep an eye out for the book, due out this winter; step lightly around the souffle.)
* It's hard to select a church to attend when visiting Seattle, but it's easier to select two.
* I'm looking forward to being home, and to visiting Seattle again.

Likewise Books from InterVarsity Press explore a thoughtful, active faith lived out in real time in the midst of an emerging culture.
