Off To Quinnipiac

Today I've been packing and getting ready to leave for Hamden, CT where I'll be involved in an outreach at Quinnipiac University.

The FCA chapter (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) and another Christian group on campus are sponsoring this event called REC YOUR LIFE. Of course the word REC refers to recreation. My nephew Bud Fisher (you've read lots of posts about him) asked me if I'd speak and I was more than happy to oblige. My dear friend and office colleague, David Kennedy, is traveling with me. We're going to have a great time! We'll drive halfway today and finish the trip tomorrow.

The title of my presentation is a long one but, of course, I'm going to be spending most of my time on the last two phrases. Here's the title:

"Eat, Drink and Party, for tomorrow we die...Breaking the Cycle, Changing our World". More later on that. Please pray for safety as we drive and pray for God's anointing as I speak.

On Saturday morning David and I will take the Amtrak into New York City where we'll explore for the day. David has never been in Manhattan before.

Thanks for your loving prayers and concern. As I mentioned in my earlier post, it's been a difficult week but I'm trusting that the Lord will refresh and renew me while we're away. Pray too for Carol and the kids while I'm gone. Thanks so much!

Check out Bud's hockey highlights this season by doing a search at the top of this page. Just put in Bud Fisher at Quinnipiac in the "Search Blog" section above the Pilgrim Scribblings header and see what you find.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Safe Trip!

    have a good one Too!

    will be praying for both!


  2. Dear David and David...I will be praying along with Jel that you guys have a safe trip and a friutful one...From Terry

  3. I've been praying for you during your trip! Let us know how it went. I think it's fantastic that you and your nephews seem to have such a great relationship! (Did you have a chance to catch any play-off games?).
    The past week has been busy, so I haven't always been able to comment, but just wanted to let you know that I've been faithfully reading your posts and am keeping you (and Carol and the kids!) in my prayers.
