    Awesome Time at Barclay College

    This week I was a guest at Barclay College, and had the opportunity to speak to the student body twice in chapel and once as part of Dave Kingrey's Systematic Theology class.  April 5-7 has marked Barclay's Spiritual Formation Conference, centered on the theme, "It's all Good."  Jimmy Taylor spoke this morning in chapel, focusing on "The Good and Beautiful Community."  I had an incredible visit to Haviland, Kansas, which is a small prairie town along Highway 54 west of Wichita.  Dave Williams, the college chaplain, received me very graciously, introduced me to a broad range of people, and made sure my experience was in line with the best of Christian hospitality.  I connected with a few students via Twitter, who were quick to make fun of me as soon as I revealed my handle, and I had numerous other good conversations with students on campus as well.

    You can listen to my talks either via a live stream at the Barclay Chapel website (direct link: April 5, April 6 - had trouble accessing these on my Mac, worked fine with my PC), or via the links for download below (right-click and select "Download Linked File As..." to obtain the file).

    Thanks to those at Barclay for hosting me graciously.  I pray that the student body and the faculty was blessed as I was.

    Hey Ben,
    Listened to the first part and am planning to listen to the second. It was great hearing your story and your message afterwards. Your analogies were very helpful and I look forward to reading/listening more to you. Thanks for sharing, it was great listening to while working out...start a podcast!

    The podcast idea might be a bit much. Those take work! Thanks for taking the time to listen.
