People always seem somewhat amazed and surprised when Tricia and I end up in the same place. It happens.

One place it happens is under the Presbyterian Big Tent. Two years ago we had a picture taken with Valerie Small. This summer, at Big Tent Two, Tony Aja snapped a picture of us while at dinner. No doubt Tricia and I will get together again – at least in two years. Maybe we should hold the Big Tent more often.

See you along the Trail.

In all the chaos of disengaging from Big Tent Two, I forgot that today is not a vacation day – it is a holiday. I have to revise my entire plan for approaching the day.

While I do that, let me say:

  •  Happy Birthday to my sister, to Vince, and all those who share this day!
  • Thanks to all those who have served and sacrificed in so many different ways to help my country do justice, seek peace, and be the best in can be.
  • Thanks to all who serve today – in whatever ways.
  • Thanks to all who love my country enough to remember its misdeeds and sins – and to help us make restitution and reparation so we can move into the future.

See you along the Trail.

Big Tent Two

There will be another Big Tent – a gathering of at least ten Presbyterian conferences – a family reunion – a time of learning – a time to worship and pray together.

Big Tent Two will take place in Indianapolis, IN from June 30 to July 2, 2011.

At our recent General Assembly, those of us who will have conferences taking place under the tent (and the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program will) were asked to wear promotional shirts.

I am told I looked like a young Don Johnston.
