Worship God’06?

Bob and I go way back. When I was about 15 he came to our house with Mr. Detwiler and my proud mother announced to Mr.Kauflin, “our daughter Laurie plays the piano…Laurie, play a little something for Mr. Kauflin” I tried to communicate telepathically to her which I assumed would be no problem since she freakishly knows what I’m thinking all of the time. My thoughts were, “Mom, this is Bob Kauflin, you know, of GLAD…the group you hear on the radio!!!” I think I tried for a few minutes to get out of it, but there is no use going up against a doting mother who had no idea what my real skill level was. So, I played fur elise for Bob Kauflin. He was very gracious, I’m sure – but I’ve blocked most of this experience out due to the humiliation of it all.

So, I’m going to see Mr. Kauflin again…this time to hear him, thank goodness! I am looking forward to good teaching and good fellowship. Don’t know if I’ll blog at all while I’m there, but if you’re interested in following along Tim Challies is live blogging the conference. If you’ve never read a live blog, you are in for quite an experience. He is amazing at it.

  1. That is so funny, Laurie! I can see you now…sitting at the piano trying to play something. Aren’t you glad that was so long ago that Bob probably forgot all about it?

  2. Suzanne, I saw Bob at lunch today. He somehow read my blog and said he vaguely remembered the incident. So now I’m thinking, oh great – it was memorable! that can’t be good.

  3. Too bad we live on the wrong coast. We’d love to attend one of these conferences someday. In the meantime we shall live vicariously through Challies’ live blog.

  4. This story fits right in with all the rest of your mini-dramas! 🙂 Everytime I think I’ve heard the best, embarrassing “Laurie” story, you come out w/ a new one! 🙂

    I love ya, friend. Hope you had a great time at the conference, that it was rich in every way for you and Jason. Can’t wait to catch up.

  5. Can’t wait to hear all about the conference! I heard some awesome reports all ready from returning friends! That story is too funny about Bob. My parents would do that to me all the time with guests…but thankfully none of them were Bob 🙂

  6. Laurie,
    I stumbled across your website while attempting to locate a Maryland Intent to Homeschool Form. (Don’t ask. I can’t figure it out.)

    I was intrigued. I was hooked when I saw “Worship God 06”, just completed at my church, and then saw all the name-dropping and links to names of people I know and worship with…

    Who are you? Feel free to start a private dialogue at my email, dmalament@yahoo.com. I could not locate a profile or an email anywhere on your blog to email you directly.
