This rather improbable picture was taken at the United Methodist Publishing House in Nashville.
As I mentioned in Tuesday’s post, I spent several days last week in Middle Tennessee at the New Room Conference. While there, I wanted to visit with the people who have been the impetus behind Head Scratchers, The Shadow Of A Doubt, and The Storm Before The Calm.
So I was able to meet some people in person whom I had previously only known through email, Twitter, and telephone. The staffs of Abingdon & Cokesbury arranged a reception, asked me to talk about the different sermon series that have become books (and how it was that Abingdon heard about them in the first place), gave me a tour of their new digs, talked about future projects (wha-what?), and as you can see took the traditional “guest-with-a-John-Wesley” photograph for posterity.
Looking forward to a return visit.
