Plane ticket on Southwest Airlines to Chicago: $140.00.

Two day full size car rental via Priceline: $68.00.
Cost to attend annual New Life of Vernon Hills Bible conference: 0.00 (that’s right it’s free)
Hearing challenging and encouraging messages by Thabiti Anybwile, Anthony Carter and Louis Love Jr. on godliness in the home, church, culture etc., delighting in uplifting worship through singing led by brother Wyeth Duncan (we sang “In Christ Alone” and “Hold On To God‘s Unchanging Hands"), enjoying the warm hospitality of the New Life of Vernon Hills church family, hanging out with the fam at Denny’s while talking about impacting the black church and community with reformed theology and sharing an afternoon with my son in downtown Chitown… Priceless, absolutely priceless.
