As I tried to get more details about the event this weekend I’m to speak at, airfare doubled from last week to this, since it’s a holiday weekend. I may wind up going on the bus, a nine-hour trip. By air, by the time I catch a bus to the airport, jump through all the hoops, get from the airport there to the city (an hour away), it will be at least a five hour trip — no more than two in the air. So it won’t be that bad of a difference.
I have my ideas for the sermon, on “Winning in Defeat,” but it’s not coming together like I’d like to see it. But it usually does fall in place.
If I go by bus, I think I’ll go Friday night, speak Saturday, and return Sunday night.
