Back in Civilization ...

What a delightful week ... canoeing with Fuller Seminary DMin students in the Boundary Waters of northern Minnesota, as a guest lecturer with Tony Jones' cohort of students. What a fantastic way to get an education ... Fuller deserves a lot of credit (pun intended) for encouraging this kind of learning community. Superb guides, challenging portages, great food, wild weather, excellent teamwork, tremendous equipment, and being constantly surrounded by God's beautiful creation ... it's hard to imagine anything better.

PS: Here's Tony's blog (part 1) on the adventure - with a good photo (courtesy Courtney):

On Wednesday, I leave for Wild Goose Festival. More outdoor experiences ... more great teaching ... this feels like the beginning of the best summer in memory. I hope to see many of you at Wild Goose - if not in North Carolina this week, in Portland, OR, at Summer's end.
PS - I just learned there are still tickets for this week in North Carolina. Why don't you come?
