"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
I've arrived in Johannesburg after a long but wonderfully uneventful journey. The conference (www.team2007.org) doesn't start until tomorrow so people are still slowly arriving and getting settled.
There is wireless internet here, but it is slow and spotty -- but I think it will be good enough for me to post regularly and even to get some photos in. I think I'll have to write offline and then wait until things are connected and then do a quick cut-and-paste into blogger!
Called Robin's cell via the miracle of Skype just a minute ago and talked with her -- wonderful to hear her voice after a long trip.
It's close to 5 pm here. I'm going to take a shower I'm sure I REALLY need and then take a walk around. More later.

"Christ's example is being
demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,
which is AIDS. The church is the sleeping giant here.
If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
