I don’t know how to describe where we are staying in Serengeti National Park-kind of like a lodge that serves 3 meals and kind of like camping.

I moderated in Studio B, so my ability to take good notes was limited. Conference WiFi 24 laptops in the room. Most if not all connected to the demo Xirrus array in [...]
David Kinnaman, President of The Barna Group and author of unChristian, gave a talk at Resurrection tonight and took questions from Adam and the audience. Here are my notes. David has been with Barna for 14 years, since he was a junior in college (which makes him approx. 35). The public thinks present-day Christianity is [...]
