So we’ve finally arrived at THURSDAY.

On Tuesday, I see Jim Belushi. On Wednesday, Pamela Anderson. But on Thursday, best of all, pictured above in one of his favorite places (in front of the Stauffer Chapel), Pepperdine English professor, Michael Lasley.

Six high-quality lectures today: three Part Two’s following up on Wednesday (Rick Atchley, Rubel Shelley, and Randy Harris), Darryl Tippens this morning, a class on The Irresistible Revolution led by Sara Barton and Josh Graves, and a keynote by a neat preacher from Japan whose name I cannot remember, nor could I spell properly if I did remember it.

Two of my favorite extra-lecture parts from today:
(1) I got to spend significant time this morning with Danny & Terri Dodd, my friends from Pensacola, and…
(2) I got to spend significant time with Mikey again this evening. He showed me around the Malibu downtown shops (where he has seen lots of stars, most recently, Britney Spears, and Rod Stewart), we drove by Malibu High School (what a place to go to school, huh?), and we ate dinner at an Italian restaurant. Most importantly, as expected with Mikey, we had great conversation.

And tonight, I bought a cord to be able to hook up to the Internet in my dorm room!!!! So consider yourself caught up. I’m whipped!!!

    Even Mikey can’t believe the ‘best of all’ after Bible teacher Pamela Anderson poses for a pic for you!

  2. Lisa says:

    Sounds like you’re having a good time!! 🙂

  3. Michael Lasley says:

    Oh…come on, jd. If I were wearing shorts, there wouldn’t be any question about the ‘best of all’!

  4. Stoned-Campbell Disciple says:

    Al it was great to meet you at Pepperdine. And meeting Pamela Anderson … at Pepperdine of all things. Now that ought to increase enrollment!!!!

    JD/Mikey: Mikey was the photographer on the now infamous shot, and he’s even a better photographer than either of us. Of course he had good material; I was looking radiant that day.

    Lisa: Michael remembers your husband well! He even said good things! 🙂 And, yes, the trip has been a very good one.

    Bobby: It was great meeting you as well. Looking forward to “Kingdom Come,” and when the new book comes out, make sure you blast a promo across my blog.
