On the Road Again

Well, I just finished my talks and interaction here in Blacksburg with those participating in the e4 project.

I really enjoyed connecting with this group of people.  They are thinking deeply about what it means to follow Jesus in our world today and that always excites my heart.  My only wish is that I would have had more time to get to know each person and more about their personal life stories.

I’m getting ready to have one last meal with my brother and his family before getting on the road again for about 4 1/2 hours to drive to the D.C. area.  I remember taking this drive so many times in the past.  I have many fond memories of taking this trip from Blacksburg,VA to Woodbridge,VA enjoying the beauty up and down highway 81.

Tonight I will stay at my parents house and fly back to LA on Saturday morning.  This year it is my plans to travel less and stay in LA more.  I’m excited about coming home and connecting with friends and meeting some new ones as well.

    So I hear you keep saying that this year you plan to travel less and stay in LA more… But then I keep hearing about another trip to some corner of the world! I really do hope that you’ll be able to hit a season of settlement sometime soon and get in the California groove again… For the sake of Kairos and for your own sake.

    Eric,

    I will only be traveling 1/3 of the time that I did last year, so I am cutting back quite a bit. This trip was planned about a year ago, though I had to extend it because of my Dad getting sick. I am looking forward in being a lot in LA. My next scheduled trip isn’t until March. Wow! That’s a long time, when last year I probably traveled about every other week.
