You guys might not know this, but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one-man wolf pack. But when I started the summer institute, I knew these people were my own. And my wolf pack… it grew by sixteen. So there… there were seventeen of us in the wolf pack… I was alone first in the pack, and then I joined the summer institute. And three weeks ago, when the institute started, I thought, “Wait a second, could it be?” And now I know for sure, I just added sixteen more to my wolf pack. Seventeen of us wolves, running around the desert together, in Grand Rapids, looking for inspiration and insight. So this morning, I make a toast!
