This afternoon's NAUMS Annual Meeting must surely count among the strangest meetings I've attended, let alone conducted, in the last thirty-four years of my ministry. Many thanks to Gene and Phil, without whom the entire affair would have been surreal. Nice to know somebody's minding the store. Still, the business got done.
I'm going to go home after lunch tomorrow (today, now). I'm going to do other things that need doing. I'm going to let my mind completely clear. Then, I'm going to have to ask myself -- not for the first time -- why people act the way they do. And would they do better if I brought my gavel to chuck at their heads?
