Toronto Evangelical Bloggers Brunch

Ian Clary, who blogs at Ruminations by the Lake, and who serves as Research and Administrative Assistant to the Principal of Toronto Baptist Seminary (the Principle being Michael Haykin), has begun to organize a Toronto-area Evangelical Bloggers Brunch. “This will hopefully provide an opportunity for a lot of us who only know each other through our respective blogs to meet. The invitation is open to anyone in the GTA who blogs and considers themselves conservative evangelicals.”

It will be held Saturday January 21st, 2006 at 10am at a location still to be determined, but probably somewhere on the Western side of the GTA. I’m lobbying for Oakville or Burlington. To provide some structure to the event, both Dr. Haykin and I will be delivering a short address on “the relationship between Christianity and the blogosphere.” Ian later uses the term “lecture” to describe this address, but I am not much of a lecturer. In fact, I am generally far more comfortable with the written word than the spoken word, so this event will see me stepping a little outside of my comfort zone. Of course it doesn’t help much that I am speaking after (or before) someone who speaks for a living. But I trust this will not be a competition!

If you live in the Toronto area, are a conservative evangelical, have a blog and are interested in more information, you can find it here.

    Can I confess something to you? There’s one thing Aileen does that really bugs me. We will be talking together and enjoying one another’s company. But then, as we chat, I’ll hear the telltale buzz of her phone. And I can tell that I’ve lost her. I can see it in the look on her…
