I am excited to join many of you this September in Melbourne, a city with a reputation for growth, energy and dynamism that is garnering attention even here in staid old Boston!   As a sports fan, I am hoping to see a “footy match,” as I fell in love with your sport during my last visit. After that visit I faced a lot of odd looks here in Boston when I enthusiastically reported that I was now “barracking” for Carlton. Regarding more important matters, our conference offers a remarkable opportunity to share insights and resources in service of our church.  I anticipate learning much from the Australian church.  See you soon
