The Ecology of the Suburban Thug

I was just telling the now-25-year-old Wench about this, as she just had her gangsta birthday party yesterday (which was awesome btw). So there ya go.*

The EM retreat conference was unexpectedly good. Unexpected because, well, I had no expectations. None. Zero. Nada. Zip. Zilch. You get my point. I had no idea what it was going to be about, what a "conference" was, how worship would go, etc. I think that it wasn't actually too different from a retreat. Sure we were at a hotel, not a campground. Sure we didn't have a guest speaker. Sure we didn't have a big praise team for the "rallies". Was there even a sermon? I guess those are pretty big differences, yet we still worshipped, still learned a ton, still bonded, and still had a lot of fun. Isn't that what happens at retreats? Anyway, where we (as the EM) go from here is anyone's guess. Will what we discussed and learned lead to what Roy expects and foresees for our future? It's both scary and exciting.

Enough of that. Back to the funny:

*Saints Row is a videogame where you play as a gangsta, very similar to the Grand Theft Auto series. I downloaded the demo from XBox Live, and watched the Wench laugh with glee as she plowed through old grannies with a SUV. You can get some info for the game here, if you're interested:

    Adrian: "What are you doing?"

    Daniel: "Watching 24."

    I shed a tear.
