I was reading today from a devotional called “Men of integrity.”  You can look at the daily thoughts here.  The thought that struck me? 

You didn’t tell a lie, you just left a big hole in the truth. —Helen Thomas (journalist)

Second area of cogitation?  There is a project called “The Nines.”  Read more about it here.  On September 9th a number of church leaders will talk on leadership for nine minutes each.  I’ve registered (it’s free).  Looks like great stuff – goes for about nine hours starting at 9:09 in the morning.
