The 3rd leg of the Logos Bible Road Trip began June 16th in Nashville when my family and I took the keys from Landon Norton and his family.
We spent Saturday with Morris and Cindy Proctor. The ladies took off for the RC Cola and Moon Pie festival in Bell Buckle, TN, and Morris gave me the grand tour of the new Morris Proctor Seminars headquarters. I was amazed to see all the new Logos 3.0 training materials Morris has produced. Make sure and check out the Camp Logos schedule and attend a Camp Logos coming to your neck of the woods – with over 100 new features and updates in Logos 3, Camp Logos is a great place to get the most from your Logos investment.
The evening was capped off with an incredible lasagna dinner prepared by Cindy and then it was off for our first night in the RV – by the way, there are six of us trekking through the U.S. in the Logos RV for the next 4 weeks: Scott, Michelle, Tayler – 13 years old, Beau – 12 years old, Autumn – 5 years old, and Chase – 3 years old. Please pray for my wife’s sanity over the next 4 weeks!!!
We had a very busy 1st week presenting Logos 3.0 in Nashville, Chattanooga, Birmingham, and twice in Atlanta. Wow, is it hot in the South!!! The 2 events in Atlanta were split between Walk Thru the Bible and Destiny Metropolitan Worship Church where Bryan Crute is the pastor of this dynamic fellowship. 125 people showed up for the Destiny stop making it the largest attended Road Trip event so far! Here are some encouraging words Pastor Crute had to say about the event:
“The Logos Bible Software Road Tour will prove to be one of the highlights of our year – our congregation was on the edge of their seats during the entire presentation! I can’t say thank you enough to the Logos family for its commitment to fuse technology with faith and create a tool that will strengthen the spiritual core of a weakened church. Thank you Scott and the Logos family for your commitment to equipping the Body of Christ and helping us become “workmen who do not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15)” – Pastor Bryan Crute, Destiny Metropolitan Worship Church
We spent Saturday with our dear friends Jon and Heather Langford of Loganville, GA. As we were preparing to spend the day sightseeing we heard a knock on the door of the RV. I opened the door and was greeted by Roger Brock. Roger is a demolitions expert and was driving through the neighborhood when he noticed the Logos RV. [Insert joke here about Roger wanting to finish the job Landon started. —Ed.] He pulled over to find out what Logos was all about. After a brief 10-minute demo of Logos in the RV kitchen, Roger sped away (literally burnt a little rubber) to talk with his wife about what he witnessed. 15 minutes later Roger was back with check in hand and is now the proud owner of Scholar’s Library. What a great start to our day with the Langfords!
The day got even better after our friends took us to the restaurant voted “Best Southern Cooking” where I had the awesome privilege of tasting fried green tomatoes…after reading this post my wife wanted me to be more specific and mention that I ate at least 15 fried green tomatoes! If you’re ever in the Atlanta area you have to visit The Blue Willow Inn in Social Circle, Georgia – probably the best food I have ever had.
After Atlanta we headed down to Florida…I’ll write another blog post soon to let you know how things are going in the Sunshine State.
