Snopes knows stuff. One can type in a question and Snopes knows answers.
So, Snopes, is it true Francis Chan is scheduled to speak at the Tulsa Workshop next year?
While Snopes does the necessary research, allow me to field that question.
The correct answer is Yes; Francis Chan is scheduled to speak twice at the Tulsa Workshop in March 2013. He is to do the Thursday evening keynote and the 11:00 a.m. keynote on Friday.
And how did that come about?
I invited him.
But there is more.
I invited him in 2011for the '13 workshop. A response said Mr. Chan was all booked throughout '11 and '12. I responded that my invitation was for the year 2013. A second response came back, He's busy then, too.
But then I learned that my friend, Wes Woodell, knew Francis personally. Wes was able to speak with him personally about the workshop and the next thing I knew, we had Mr. Chan on the program.
True; Snopes may not know this, yet. But you do! I think you will want to be here!
