Off to the see the wizard

I'm getting ready to head on down the road to Nashville. Got two days' worth of meetings there tomorrow and Saturday. Most of it is Orientation and other bullroar connected with being a Director of the General Commission on United Methodist Men. Saturday afternoon, the Scouting Ministries Committee will meet to set quadrennial goals, and that's the piece I'm particularly interested in. I have several things I'm pursuing on behalf of NAUMS:
developing a United Methodist trek at Philmont Scout Ranch;

creating a new religious award for adults in UM Scouting Ministries (a program of leadership development and discipleship, not a recognition for past service);

trying to figure out how to update and re-publish My Lord Knows the Way Through the Wilderness, the worshipbook we published here in 2002 -- and offer it online at the NAUMS website.

Once this is over, then I'll be drawing up an agenda for our Fall on-line NAUMS meeting.

Well, gotta go.
