The evening started hot and ended in a flurry of wind and rain. What’s Annual Conference without the obligatory downpour from a thunderstorm? This time it came on the ONE night we were supposed to be outside. But we ate the ice cream and folks of all ages took shots at the Campus Ministries’ sponsored basketball challenge.
The evening was an informal chance to gather with our friends and colleagues. No one had a chance to see everyone they wanted to see before the ice cream was melting, the basketball apparatus began to deflate, and the storm was coming.
And come it did! It was like the end of Elijah’s contest on Mt. Carmel! We did not, however, slay the 450 prophets of Baal at the brook of Kishon. However…we happily slew about 450 bowls of ice cream.
