Off Time

The devotions will be irregular to non-existent for a little while. Here’s why.

Several things are going on the next week or so are conspiring against my regular devotions. The big thing is Apple’s WorldWide Developer Conference in San Francisco, which I’ll be attending every day this week. That means leaving the house around 6 AM, and returning around 8-9 PM. I won’t be able to do my regular study under those circumstances. I plan to take the train some days, and perhaps do a partial study, though without Internet access it won’t be the same.

The other factor is that I’ve started a dialogue with Luis Bush regarding Transformations 2005: Indonesia. We’re exploring the possibility of my acting as a marketing consultant, to shape the messages used both for outreach and for structuring the conference. I don’t want to make the mistake I did with the AD2003: South Bay project, where I got in over my head and generated a lot of unnecessary stress. I need to seek God and ensure that I properly bound my involvement to ensure I keep my family, physical/mental health, and Apple commitments on track.

I’m meeting with my mentor John Isaacs on July 8th, so hopefully I’ll be able to make a decision soon after that. Until then, I may be taking time off from these devotions to pray by myself or with my wife. After that, i hope to resume regular devotions, though I may end up (also?) blogging my experiences with the Transformations conference.

Not sure exactly why I’m recording all this, since I doubt anyone is following this blog in real time (if at all). But, the concept of a virtual reader is what helps keep me disciplined, and this way if I or anyone else look back on all this they’ll know what was going on at the time.

May God bless us all.
