Rob Bell is Coming to LA in February


My friend Caleb just let me know that Rob Bell, one of my favorite authors and defiantly one of my favorite people, is coming to Los Angeles on the Drops Like Stars Tour on February 20th, 2010. I would love to hear him talk about his newest topic of interest. His book Drops Like Stars is really interesting, especially aesthetically (it's a coffee table book... only Rob would do that).

Here's a little something about the Tour:
We plot, we plan, we assume things are going to go
A certain way and then they don’t and we find ourselves
In a new place, a place we haven’t been before, a place
We never would have imagined on our own,
And so it was difficult and unexpected and maybe even
Tragic and yet it opened us up and freed us to see
Things in a whole new way
Suffering does that—
It hurts,
But it also creates.
How many of the most significant moments in your
Life came not because it all went right, but because
It all fell apart?
It’s strange how there can be art in the agony…
The Drops Like Stars tour is a two
Hour exploration of the endlessly complex
Relationship between suffering and creativity—
And I’d love to see you there.

I am going to see Drops in Atlanta in October. Wish we could see it together Wes! The Catalyst Conference is the following two days and I'll also be attending that. Wes ask your wife if you can go!

Dude, I'd be all over that Catalyst Conference if I could afford it... but I can't.
