Okay, so I'm spending a week with Eugene Peterson this summer and therefore do not get to whine about not getting to go to cool conferences with cool people this summer. BUT. Thanks to a little bit of harmless procrastination, I just happened upon the Faculty list for the 2009 Glen Workshop. Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler have been teaching a songwriting workshop there for a couple years now, so no big surprise. But guess who is the staff Pastor for the week? Debbie Blue, who has quickly become the preaching equivalent of Over the Rhine in my nerdy universe. As much as I would totally love to be there (so not going to happen, I'm already off for a month this summer!), I can't tell you how giddy it makes me to think that these three people that I respect so much - who have had such a real impact on my life - are going to spend the week together. They are going to have some great conversations, I just know it.
