I’m headed to the Baptist Convention of Iowa on Friday for our annual meeting in Des Moines. We will have a Pastor’s Banquet on Friday night with Dr. Jason Allen, a CP breakfast on Saturday with a fella named Frank Page, then our convention has been compacted into a one day event. I have a long drive home so I would try to sneak away early, but they often schedule something big as the finale. I haven’t looked, but I suspect Dr. Page’s message might be the closing event – no way I’m missing that! We are electing a all new officers this year and our convention has had some political roiling the last few years – too long a story to go into and not important enough to anyone outside our state. We are seeing some significant changes and transitions in our convention – not sure what we are going to look like in two or three years. We seem to be experiencing growth, so that’s good.

Tell Uncle Dave all about it.
