Hey Ben! While I won't be able to attend the Whiteboard conference, which I'm bummed about, I do look forward to Story 2010!

Also, I TOTALLY agree on the Tom Hanks comment. When I take my boys out, people light up. Interesting.

Re: kids with you in public:

Our kids are our secret weapon in urban ministry. They demolish ethnic, language, and culture barriers to connecting.

We live in urban NE Portland, Oregon, with a very ethnically diverse community. Taking our kids to the park or riding the bus or train opens the door to talking to other parents. We don't even have to speak the same language.

Of course, we're not "misusing" our kids - we just socialize intentionally together with them to make friends and be ambassadors for Jesus. They're an integral part of ministry to whole families.
