girl's conference theme


Be merciful to me, O God, for men hotly pursue me;
Psalm 56:1a

Due to Justin's recent comments on Bible exposition and the encouragement of my partner in ministry, Amanda, I have decided that my first big Girl's Conference that I speak at should be centered around the theme laid out in the verse above.

What do you think?

We could even have T-shirts.

(front) Be merciful to me, O God ...

(back) for men HOTLY pursue me.

Hmm ... how should my outline look? What topics should I cover?

rofl - very funny

i'm thinking one session could be

"How to Entice Pursuit"

another could be

"How to fight off Mr. Wrong"

and another:

"How to Choose Which One"

what else?

I'd have to rely majorly on my "acting" skills to pull this one off. Ha, as if I have extensive experience! Could you just imagine?!!! Ha!

The Borg said...

LOL

Love it!

Please send me a t-shirt.

:P

ckhnat said...

i think you should design it for us!

I know! You guys set it up and I'll do the conference in Hobart!

I should start my own

SupportStine site to raise money to go to Oz.

Nixter said...

You should go on tour. Of course Sydney would be one of the stops ;P

ckhnat said...

naturally ... sounds like you got a sweet hookup when you went to OZ ... keep your eyes and ears open for me!

watch out SupportMike ... SupportStine is going on tour, as well.

CraigS said...

Lots of tall guys at our church CK...must be something in the water...

ckhnat said...

whatever Craig! I heard ya'll Sydney-siders are shorties.

Nixter said...

EYES AND EARS OPEN 8)

CraigS said...

Well, there were 2 or 3 at church mikes height or taller, which is saying something.

Your latest pix are good advertising... ;-)

CraigS said...

I object to the suggestion that my compliment was not sincere...

I have no doubt men pursue you, but if you keep putting pictures up the offers will be via e-mail rather than real people in your own state.

I have issues with how some girls fight off Mr. Wrong. There are ways, and there are cruel ways that can't be justified. And you never know, Mr.Wrong can morph into Mr.Right given some time. I learnt this reading a novel my sister had when she was in grade 6. :) The slightly arrogent boy at the beggining of the book (summer camp counselor), would be the handsom boy in white by the end.

(But in your case, Mr.Wrong will be the one not yet familiar with Habakkuk!)

CraigS said...

There *are* cruel ways of rejecting Mr Wrong. I think lying and making excuses is somewhat cruel - better to be up front. Using Mr Wrong as an emotional stop-gap is also cruel.

Still, girls like that pretty quickly get a reputation. Guys do talk to each other as well - maybe not as much. And you do take note of how a girl treats other guys. And sometimes you think "there's one to be avoided".

lcp said...

Hey--I've got an idea for the theme song to kick off the event. IT'S RAINING MEN! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!!!

sajini said...

"Be merciful to me, O God, for men hotly pursue me"

When I first read that verse, I thought it said:

"Be merciful to me, O God, for hotly men pursue me"

Kelli B said...

Okay so that is GREAT! Hilarious! I'd love to see it. And I'd love a t-shirt. :)

Scott said...

Ha, that's great!

ckhnat said...

and *I* object that you think that's why I posted those pics! hmph.

ckhnat said...

... as if height were my only criteria, Craig. Sheesh. Need I remind you of THIS?!!

CraigS said...

Well, those were Mike's opinions...

The Borg said...

Possible T-shirt logo for your consideration: a bench under a tree. Solitary female on bench (book optional, startled expression essential). Thoughts?

bethy31 said...

Can't wait to meet you at the DG conference with Sajini...I'll give you my t-shirt sketches then!

Katie said...

AHAHAHA, all through high school that was the verse my friends and I traded as encouragement . . . too bad it wasn't true for most of us (still isn't)

mike said...

How long did I try and come up with a comback for the "men hotly pursue me"

mike said...

A long time... a very long time and nothing :( . Love you
