(And the Ichthus Mustic Festival was, in short, really hot and pretty good on the whole. I did spend some time with my old professor Charlie Alcock, listen to some great thoughts from Shane Claiborne, enjoyed the concerts (Switchfoot ended the weekend strong!) I left feeling tired and yet reenergized at the same time. See my previous post for more info on what went down at Ichthus).
Oh, and I also met David Crowder....which is a pretty interesting story. But, I'll leave you hanging for now, just like with the hippos!)
