GodBlogCon 2005—the name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, but that’s ok—has been officially scheduled to be held at the Torrey Honors Institute of Biola University, Los Angeles, October 13 through 15. Dr. John Mark Reynolds will be host, and a number of well-known bloggers have signed on to coordinate various discussions. Political blogger Hugh Hewitt will be a keynote speaker.
The purpose of GodBlogCon 2005 is to gather Christian bloggers together to learn from each other about how to use blogging more effectively for the Kingdom of God. Dr. Andrew Jackson has been working hard to get this conference off the ground and you can find many of the details at his site.
If I’m in the country, I plan to attend. For myself, I look forward to the chance to meet in the flesh many of the brothers and sisters in Christ whom I have been getting to know in the ether of the Internet.
I was interviewed a few days ago by Debra Nussbaum Cohen, a reporter for the New York Times—not something that happens to me everyday, I assure you. She had heard about GodBlogCon and wanted to know more. I have the feeling this event will attract a lot of attention from the media. Let’s start praying now that God will be glorified by what takes place at this historic meeting.
Hi Charlie, the NYT article ran today, with a hotlink to more info on the conference, so expect some visitors.
