I know a group of cows is called a herd. If it’s lions, it’s a pride. Birds form a flock, but geese a gaggle. Fish never learn to read but together they are a school.
So, what do you call a group of Baptist Bloggers who get together? I can think of no better name than a “Bluster of Bloggers.”
So, I’m trying to organize a Bluster of Bloggers in Baltimore next week. I’ve talked to my local contact and he tells me that there is a Cheesecake Factory near the convention center. Alas, there is no Beignet-bearing Cafe Du Monde anywhere, but cheesecake might be a good consolation prize.
Now, here’s the deal – finding a time is really difficult. There’s something going on morning, noon and night. The best time to have this seems to be Monday night after the end of the pastor’s conference. Of course, I have been told that is also the 9 Marks gathering. I was hoping that Rick Patrick, Tim Rogers and David Worley might join us, but I know that they will all be at 9 Marks. So, I’m not sure what to do.
Anyway, this is an informal, no program, get-to-know-you gathering for anyone who would like to come. This is the only invitation you need. Bring a friend. Bring someone you don’t like. Just come.
But, what I need to know is what time works the best for you guys. We could:
A) Meet for supper somewhere on Monday between sessions. Maybe the Cheesecake Factory, maybe another place.
B) Meet for dessert at the Cheesecake Factory after the Monday session. This seems like the best time, but the conflict with other events may keep some of our folks away.
C) Is there a better time? Let me know suggestions. Sunday night is a possibility, but so many folks don’t get there until Monday. Breakfast hours are pretty well booked. Perhaps we could go back to Tuesday night but there is a conflict at almost every time.
So, let me know. I guess I’m leaning toward competing with 9 Marks on Monday night (hope we wouldn’t cut into their crowd too badly) but I want to hear from you.
