Trip/Conference Thoughts Pt. 2
When I grow up, I want to able to give presentations like Jeremy Begbie. His talk Friday night was a delight. He talked about two notions of newness: the modernist avant-garde idea and the Christian idea of re/newness. He read his paper - but it was lively and polished - dare I say he spoke with a musical cadence. He played for us musical examples on the piano. His powerpoint was minimalistic and pointed.

I only wish I was there to hear his talk on Saturday night.
