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.
