CHARLIE KYMES IS A GREAT PREACHER. He works with Tulsa's Crosstown congregation and I heard him preach Joy Keesee's funeral today. Charlie is the real deal. The reason? He passionately cares about people. The guy just seems to have a genuine sense of connecting God and people.
I'M HEADED TO MY ANNUAL CARDINALS BASEBALL CAMP IN FLORIDA NEXT WEEK. I did 80 flights on the StairMaster today, plus a few other little weights and stretches. Being age 60 changes a few things for me, baseball-wise. I no longer round the bag. I sneak up on it. Last year in the big game, when I came up to bat, the outfielders laid down! It gets worse! I have a DISHONORABLE MENTION: In two of the last three years I have won the No Where To Go But Up Award. Obviously the achievement is an intended insult. The award itself? An autographed picture of three Cubs players. I gave one to David Kellams and the other to Shawn Mayes.
THE TULSA SOUL WINNING WORKSHOP SCHEDULE is now posted on the workshop web. It's about 98% complete. Once again over 25% of the speakers are rookies. It's always good to see a new crop mixed in with the oldies but goodies. Thursday night's keynotes with PATRICK MEAD and JOSH GRAVES promises to be a great beginning for the evening events.
DON McLAUGHLIN is scheduled to be the evening speaker at Memorial's Workshop Wednesday.
