•  Dallas will be teaching an all-day conference Saturday, April 17, from 9am-5pm, at the Anaheim Vineyard entitled "Knowledge For Life."  I plan on being there, but seating is limited, so register online right now at  Here's a blurb from the webpage,

In 5 one-hour-long sessions, Dallas will explain:  1) Why spiritual knowledge matters to our flourishing.  2) How and why secularism assaults spiritual knowledge and what to do about it.  3)  How human desires need spiritual knowledge in order for a life to be led well.  4) How and why knowledge, not mere faith-commitment, empowers us to be in the public square.  And, 5) How to have a life that steadfastly experiences growth in knowledge and love.
