Hippo Birdy 2 this

What about taking in a conference this summer, I wonder? I’m off to Chicago for the Willow Creek Leadership Summit, on the day this blog is one year old. In that time, for the record, Google Analytics tells me it’s had 103,747 views as a result of 58,446 visits from 23,838 absolutely unique visitors. These stats remind me of the Life of Brian where he tells the crowd “you’re all individuals!” and they respond “we’re all individuals!” apart from one lone voice that adds “I’m not!” As I leave the country, reflecting on all the challenges revealed at Lambeth and elsewhere, I think of the apocalyptic guff emanating from our friends in the media and elsewhere, using a brilliant bit of inspiration from the unique and very individual Dave Walker.

As one of the 23,838, thankyou. Throughout Lambeth I've been avoiding all the blogging and media reports, with the sole exception of this one.

Have a wonderful time in Chicago!

If you like beer, be sure to try the Sprecher. It's made just up the road, in Milwaukee, and it's fantastic. I especially like the Special Amber.

Bon voyage!

Many thanks for all good wishes and Sprecher Special Amber tip-offs. Looking forward greatly to our short time here, and do anticipate supplementing WC with a visit to the Church of the Atonement on Sunday...
