Annoyingly vague post

In Seattle. It's raining. Reminds me of a lame literary joke

Why did Ernest Hemmingway cross the road?
To die. Alone. In the rain.

Anyway, there' s a bit of politicking involved in this USA trip and it seems like there'll be lots of Serious Conversations at strange times, perhaps even in hallways. Circled page numbers in newspapers. Underground carpark meetings. Messages in matchbooks.

Please pray for me and everyone involved in this stuff, including Driscoll and his team. Please pray that we are concerned with being gentle and loving and Christian before being 'strategic' or 'playing hardball' or whatever.
