What a marvelous week at the Tulsa Workshop. I was able to attend Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Larry was with me Wednesday and Friday and Karla was with me all three days. It was exciting meeting many of my blogger friends, seeing some old friends and making new ones. I heard wonderful teaching from gifted speakers and the singing, well, let me just say was truly indescribable. I believe it was Keith Lancaster who commented after one song “this is what heaven will sound like”. It just gave me chills and weak knees, it was that beautiful.

I met Greg and Amanda Sanders, Paula Harrington, John and Maggy Dobbs, Trey and Lea Morgan and two of their sons, Patrick Mead, Brian Nicklaus, Doug Young, James Jones, Darin Hamm, Trent Tanaro, Steve Tucker, Timothy Archer, Chris Gallagher, Carl Feril and his wife, (I knew I would forget a name, sorry!) Bobby and Tamie Ross, Terry Rush, Jennifer Alpers and Edward Fudge. (I really hope I haven’t forgotten anyone).

I heard lessons from Trey Morgan, Patrick Mead, John Dobbs, Jeff Walling, Terry Rush, Josh Graves, Marvin Phillips, Don McLaughlin and Al Maxey and music Master’s Praise Vocal Group and Keith Lancaster-Praise and Worship.

Friday evening several of us had dinner together at the Spaghetti Warehouse and had a great time visiting together. This was my first time at the Tulsa Workshop. Many years ago I attended some of the Pepperdine Lectureships, it is an event I definitely want to attend again.

One thing I realized is how blessed our congregation is here in Skiatook. Russell Hill is our minister and he is an excellent speaker/teacher. He brings us amazing lessons week after week, not only from the pulpit but in the classroom as well. I thank God for him and his family and realized we are so fortunate to have them with us.

Thanks for letting me share with you what a wonderful week I had.

1 John 1:3-4 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete.

    I am so sorry that we didn’t have time to visit – or even officially introduce ourselves! It seems that with kids, time to talk is somewhat limited. The workshop was an amazing experience (although Sam, our second child declared “NO MORE CHURCH” on Friday night!) for our family and it is our hope that we will get to attend again. I’m thankful for the computer to at least get to know each other a bit through this medium. Grace and peace to you!

    I’m sorry too Jennifer, it was pretty hectic in our dining area. It was fun though. Next time we will get better accquainted. In the meantime, as you said we have the computer. Grace and peace to you too!

    The only time I was able to attend the Tulsa workshop was my introduction to Randy Harris. He has been one of my favorite speakers at lectureships ever since that weekend. I know I’ll never make it back to Tulsa, but each year I really wish I could be there. I think I went to the Pepperdine lectureship almost 20 consecutive years … basically the same speakers. Good times, though.

    Definitely good times Greg. Never say “never”, the Lord might have different plans for you. 🙂
