If you ever get the chance …

Just in from a very enjoyable 4 day trip to Texas. For years, I’ve heard of Laity Lodge, a retreat property at which musical comrades David Wilcox, Andrew Peterson, Sara Groves, and Gabe Scott have performed over the years and at which writers Eugene Peterson, Leigh McLeroy, J.I. Packer and numerous others have been featured speakers. The facility can only host groups of 75 or less, meaning that the gatherings are intimate, up close and personal, exactly the sort of venues I enjoy most. Add to that that this past weekend’s event was a womens conference and you’ll hardly be surprised that I was looking forward to the trip. … All of the glowing reports that I’ve heard about Laity Lodge proved well founded – beautiful surroundings, gracious and capable staff, top-drawer facilities, and quality programming – and I could hardly have asked for a more attentive, energetic, pleasant group to be a part of (“just me and the girls”). … If you ever get the chance, you’d enjoy a retreat at this tranquil get away in the Texas hill country.

Quick footnote: here’s a photo of me and a new friend from San Antonio after a concert that i gave on Saturday night. i sang “Ode to the Rusty Strings” and gave Mrs. Julie, beautiful at 91, a guitar string ‘halo’ to thank her for being part of the weekend.
