Orlando Earthquakes

Although as far as I know, we aren’t sitting on a fault line in Orlando, the ground moved underneath us anyway last week.

Of course, the much-anticipated moving experience was the Synergy2009 conference which delivered on its promise to be earthshaking. As seems to be the case at each conference, Synergy ramped things up another notch this year. It’s Monday, and I’m still feeling the aftershocks of an incredible gathering of women and men. Despite the sagging economy, we had more attendees this year than last (from 31 different states!). The synergy among us was alive and well as we tackled the Blessed Alliance and worked to understand better God’s vision for male/female relationships in His kingdom.

More about Synergy later.

Right now, you may be asking yourself, “Why in the world am I looking at a photo of “hunky” Frank James?”

Well, there was a second earthquake in Orlando resulting in seizmic changes for our family that I didn’t expect.

The Richter Scale recorded a big one when Frank traveled to Boston early in the week for meetings at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Wednesday, he accepted their enthusiastic invitation to be their Provost. Needless to say, we are excited about opening a new chapter in our lives.

You can read their announcement here.

So much for all my gloating about warm Florida weather. Like the rest of you up North, this time next year I’ll be shivering from the cold outside, feeling overheated indoors, and longing for the first sign of Spring.

    Congratulations to both of you! Of course you will miss Florida sunshine, but New England has its beauties as well. May the transition be full with blessings.

    You can quote this same person that Spurgeon quoted:To me remains nor place, nor time: My country is in every clime; I can be calm and free from care On any shore, since God is there.While place we seek, or place we shun, The soul finds happiness in none: But with a God to guide our way, ’Tis equal joy to go or stay.
