I can’t begin to tell you what a great time of fellowship, fun, learning, and spiritual renewal that I’ve had at this year’s National Apologetics Conference and Ratio Christi Symposium. I had the opportunity to meet for the first time many apologists such as J Warner Wallace, a personal favorite of mine, Casey Luskin and Micheal Behe from the Discovery Institute, among others. I even had Dr. Richard Howe as a roommate for a night- how fun is that?!? Not to mention mention quite a few others that I got to reconnect with from meeting at other conferences.
I was glad to see many friends from the Ratio Christi staff, some of whom I got to meet in person for the first time, only knowing them previously from phone conversations and staff meetings via internet video. But hands down, the biggest thrill (and blessing) of all was getting to meet the many Ratio Christi students and chapter directors who attended this year’s annual symposium. This above all else made the trip worth it- despite missing my connecting flight home due to a mechanical failure with the arrival gate in Atlanta, where as I write this, I am stuck awaiting a MUCH later flight. I realize that these things happen, but believe me now and hear me later when I tell you that my wife is not happy with Delta Airlines, and I would hate to be them if they have to face her wrath if I get bumped from my next flight! I hope to write a more detailed report of the conference and symposium soon, but until then, thanks so much to the RC staffers and donors who made this weekend possible.
