Cherry blossoms have now been replaced by the most glorious array of dogwood blossoms I’ve ever seen at Mount Hermon! Wish you could see them. I love that God puts on such a display of His glory right around the time of Writers Conference every year.
Didn’t we have an amazing 2009 Writers Conference?! God was so evident in our midst and a palpable sense of peace pervaded everything that went on. Bill Butterworth knocked it out of the park with his motivational/Biblical general sessions, Dave Talbott and Dave Burn’s worship times were wonderful, while instruction and mentoring were life-changing. The teen track added fun and laughter to the whole with their full-campus espionage game played in costume Saturday evening. They even put on foreign accents. Funniest thing — the kids were so authentic they actually fooled our Mount Hermon security guards who stopped them for questioning! :>)
We’re already planning for next year and are excited to be able to put up specific information on the web as soon as we have confirmation of our keynoter. One new thing we’re working on is pre-registration for those of you who would like to secure your place while you save for the 2010 conference through the rest of this year. Be watching the website for updates on this. It’s the first time we’ve offered this option.
In the next little while we’ll have the CD/MP3 form up for anyone desirous of ordering individual workshops/tracks/general sessions from the recent Writers Conference. It’s a great way to continue learning during the year. And they’re exceedingly reasonable. Even if you weren’t able to come this year you may purchase them. Watch the web for the little icon that will lead you to the form. We should be receiving the audio masters in a few weeks from OT Studios and then I’ll get the form finished and uploaded, hopefully by May 15th.
Can’t wait to see you all again. Have a fabulous summer and fall, and make sure you’re encouraging friends and new writers to start saving for 2010. A little bit of cash put away each week will enable you to be ready to come March 26, 2010. It will be life-changing, as you well know. In the meantime, I’ll meet you on FB and Twitter !
