Rob Bell in Manchester


I don't think it's any great secret that probably the most significant new influence in my life (I nearly said in my Christian life then but I only have one life and it's Christian so let's just call it a life!) has been Rob Bell. Ever since seeing the first Nooma video a couple of years ago I've been through a hugely positive reworking of my faithscape. And how cool is this, when I Googled "Rob Bell Manchester" to find out the latest info on his forthcoming visit my own Amazon review of Velvet Elvis came out number 1!

Anyway, I need to calm down as I'll be meeting him next Friday afternoon and I need to not come across as some starry-eyed groupie. At the moment I'm just processing what I ought to say to him, apart from thanks of course. Any suggestions?

Hey Matt,

I just finished writing a series on Rob's book "Velvet Elvis" that I think you'd be interested in.

Hey Matt...

Just back from Rob Bell's talk in Glasgow. Fantastic.

I also got to spend some quality time with Paul and Esther Ede... small world!

Looking forward to reading Sex God - should be good.

Hope you are well?
