Quick post, 2.

I forgot to mention!!!

I met Doug Wilson and his wife Nancy in the lobby of our hotel. Just as we arrived and I was trying to get all our stuff on the luggage cart and inside, I noticed a tall, bearded gentleman walking in, one I recognized. I walked over and accosted him by asking him if he was Doug Wilson. He told me he was and politely asked me my name. I mumbled something about how my husband and I are fans (which we mostly are) and that I read his blog. He introduced me to his wife, who was also very nice. I realized that I don't think that quickly on my feet, at least when it comes to meeting celebrities - or as close as we get to "celebrities" in reformed circles. I should have told them that we love his book about infant baptism and have loaned it to several friends who were on the fence about the issue. I think I read Reforming Marriage, which I enjoyed parts of, and occasionally I'll halfway understand something on his blog.

But it was fun to meet someone so famous!

Sorry it took so long to comment on this!

I met Mark Driscoll, only because Cheryl insisted and we prayed about it, and long ago I was able to give RC Sproul and his wife a ride to the airport. The big mistake was not talking more to his wife.

Hi Aubrey,
Doug and I were so tired as we drug into that hotel....we had been up since the wee hours in Idaho and had missed a connection in Atlanta. You did surprise us in the lobby. Thanks for saying hi!
