Back to the Mississippi River Town

This past weekend I travelled to La Crosse (SW Wisconsin) for a book signing at the University Bookstore. It was a special, nostlagic trip as I spent many years there as an undergraduate (admittedly, more years than it should have taken!) and have not been there in nearly a decade. Much has changed in that time, both at the college (no more Juicy Lucy's Burger Joint) & in me. The signing was a success, and I also had the opportunity to attend a Campus Crusade for Christ kick-off meeting and was thrilled to see 300 college students gathered to worship God and hear solid Biblical teaching that pointed towards a better way. The campus seemed to come alive in my eyes thanks to this meeting; alive in a way that I had not seen or felt during my days at this Mississippi River town. It was encouraging, to say the least.

The race continues.

"The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not overcome it." John 1:5
