NYWC: retrospective - seminar series #2

The continuing retrospective of adventures involving Tanner (a.k.a. Scott), Scrammy (a.k.a. Brian), God (a.k.a. I AM), and me (a.k.a. I AM not) during our NYWC weekend.

Seminar Series #2:

Well... Scott got up early but Brian and I overslept (perhaps due to the shock of meeting David Crowder the night before). So while I have no notes... I highly recommend ordering a CD. This looked like one of the best line-up of seminars by far.

That's my trouble with YS. I stay up too late and then the best seminars are offered at 8:00am. I mean seriously now. Do they really think I can wake up that early when I'm staying in a room with two college-age interns and I'm away from my two-year-old girl so I can actually sleep in?

You know what would be interesting is to make the main speakers follow the schedule like the youth workers do. That way they're not flying in just for their thing but get worn out and loopy like the rest of us.

Which makes me wonder how in the world Marko can hit a home run for the last session after kilting it up on stage the whole time.
