One of the nice things about Washington is having access to so many resources. One is within walking distance of the church, and should be better known.
The Festival of Homiletics will be held at First Baptist Church — I'm terribly fond of FBC — at the corner of 16th and O Streets, NW from May 17 to 21, and I'm signing up. (Discounted registration before January 15.)
Yes, Fred Craddock will be there. And James Forbes and Thomas Long and Thomas Troeger and Will Willimon and a dozen other really amazing people I'm less familiar with.
It should be really, really good.
