Everyone made it through the Desiring God conference safe and sound. It was great to hear their reflections as they each brought something different away from the experience. Each speaker was unique and some definitely taught closer to "their level" than others, but the student all did a great job. They have each chosen one additional CS Lewis book to read during October. I look forward to hearing their reports in November. the lectures from the DG conference are available at


This week will be odds and ends, but next week we will have our first guest lecturer. Reuben David is Christian apologist and speaker. He will be with us for three days, and will teach two classes each day. This will be a great opportunity for the students to ask their toughest questions and reflect on the unique challenge of presenting Christ in this culture. See his web page here:
