Rushing Around, Heading Out (and laughing)

I'm running around the office (well, not so much just at this moment!) getting the last few things in order. I think we're finally ready.

In twenty minutes I'll shut down my computer, lock the building, and head for the mountains and a conference with 330 Mennonites.

I have one specific prayer request: pray that I am able to eat at the banquet tonight. I've been having stomach problems again this week, and am concerned about my ability to consume food. I'm not too worried about the rest of the meals on the weekend, but it creates an awkward social and professional situation to attend a banquet, be seated at a table with VIP guests, and not be able to eat.

It will be an interesting weekend. Lots of memories relating to things I've struggled with this year attached to past conferences, so the memories are always strong.


I have the first half of a few Mennonite jokes for you... I couldn't resist!

Answers when I get home, or if I get a chance to get to the blog before I come home.

Leave your guesses in the comments!

What is the shortest book in the world?

Why don't Mennonite women wear sleeveless dresses?

How many Mennonites does it take to change a lightbulb?

What do you call a Mennonite poet?
