Or something like that; didn't know what else to title this particular post.

I am planning on attending the Festival of Homiletics, to be held in Atlanta, later this spring. Besides having a chance to improve my skills, I'll get to hear people like Desmond Tutu, Barbara Brown Taylor, Thomas Long, Walter Brueggemann, and many more. Did I mention DESMOND TUTU??? Just . . . wow.

The second thing going on is that at last night's FD meeting I learned there is a manufacturer that is holding a contest to give away . . . GIVE AWAY a fire engine.

"To mark the launch of the Tradition ES Series, we are offering your department the opportunity to win a new Tradition ES commercial pumper. Your department could be eligible to win by simply telling us, in 500 words or less, why your department deserves to win."

So it fell to the preacher to craft a 500 word essay on why we deserve to win a new rig. Not sure what the odds are here, or whether this company that is based in the Southeast, even knows where Montana is; nevertheless, I'm starting to work on that.

Like they say, "You can't win if you don't play."

Wish us luck.
