Glad To Be Home

I have not posted in a few days because I have been in Orlando, Florida Sunday through Tuesday for a Christian School conference. The conference was put on by the Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools (SBACS) and it was called Christian School 101: How to Start a Christian School. It was a good conference and many thing we have been doing were confirmed. Maybe I should back track a bit.

My pastor has been thinking about starting a Christian school for a while now (my church is Heritage Baptist Church in Colorado Springs, CO. We have been meeting and discussing things for several, several months. We have developed a mission statement, a statement of faith, a statement of philosophy, and other aspects of beginning a Christian school.

The instructors at the conference essentially taught us things that verified we have been on the right track. Based on the first day of their instruction we decided to make some plans for the next few months. The second day of instruction reaffirmed that we were on track with out new direction. We met some great people and visited a couple of schools and it was overall a pretty good trip.

The worst part of the trip was the flying. I do not mind the flying per se. However, I hate waiting in such long lines, I do not like taking off my shoes and sending all my stuff through security, and then beeing crammed in a tube too close for comfort for everybody. I really have a hard time sitting in the middle seat, shoulder to shoulder with people I do not know, in seat WAY to small for any adult.

However, the conference and company was good.

I wasn't able to post while I was going. I plan to begin another series of post here in a day or two.
