Opening Night

Tonight, my buddy Don McLaughlin gave the opening night keynote lecture at Pepperdine. It was vintage Don… Passionate, energetic, and full of prophetic calling for justice. His theme throughout was that all Christians must strive to live the message of Christ… Not only understand it or preach it. A good word…

the other highlight of the night was getting to attend the opening night mens dinner with my dad and father in law. It was a Grape Nuts kind of experience…very cool.
