SVP in charge of Rocks

How cool is that?!!

Alright, so here's the deal. A week or two ago I got an email from the Center Services director telling me that he needed to clear some stuff out of a space that was being re-purposed and asking whether one "collection" of items might be of interest to me as we keep looking for ways to creatively tell the Wycliffe story.

The collection? Rocks. Stones. They'd been collected by a former President of Wycliffe USA and were used in a display when Wycliffe was moving from Orange County, California to Orange County, Florida -- reminders of where we'd been and of where we were going.

I immediately responded that I would find a way to use them and please feel free to deliver them to my office any time. They arrived late last week and I couldn't be happier. I'm working on developing "talking points" for them. I'm even thinking about ways to update or add to the collection -- including creating a list of places from which I'd really like to add a stone.

Once I've got a first draft of a script together, I'll probably share it here.

Until then, rejoice with me for this uniquely perfect for uniquely me delivery of big, cool rocks to my third floor office. Some of you know just how much that spoke to me of God's ability to do whatever He wants to do -- no matter how unlikely.


  1. Totally cool. :-) How big is that biggest one??

  2. Big.
    I'm guessing something like 12x17x4 inches and that's conservative on the guess.

    That one is a piece of the foundation from the chicken coop in Arkansas where Cameron Townsend (Wycliffe's founder) sat with two other guys on nail kegs in 1934 and held the first "Camp Wycliffe."
