Well we are back in our respective cities, and much like everyone else who attended the Internet Ministry Conference, our hearts and heads are very full. It’s always a wonderful time to see all the ministries that we work with on a consistent basis, and even more so to see our fellow co-workers face to face (not all of us can live in Hawaii, unfortunately).
However, we knew this year would be a little different with the closing of conference organizer Gospel Communications fresh on the horizon. But I think we were all quite impressed that despite the frustrations and confusion people may have had, the attitude of the conference was not one of navel-gazing or somberness, but one of motivation and courage. There is always a sadness with the ending of a chapter, but an excitement and a hope with the beginning of the next, and that was never more true than at this conference.
As Agathon’s resident extrovert, I want to personally thank all of you who stopped by and talked with us. It was so good to see all of you, and while we’re sorry that we can’t give you all iPods, we hope that we can help you in other more practical ways in the future.
There are, of course, many more questions that float around out there unanswered, and if there’s any of those that we can help answer, don’t hesitate to contact us via email or phone any time. I got my fill of talking to people, and I miss it already, so feel free to just call and say hi if you must.
And if you all want autographs on your trading cards, I’m sure we could arrange something.
So a big thanks from us to Gospel Communications and all you incredible ministries that have made the Internet Ministry Conference what it is. Though it will probably never look the same as it has, I do hope that the community and the purpose will.
