Mockingbird / 4.26.13

Another heartfelt thank-you to everyone who helped put on this year’s Mockingbird Conference in NYC, especially our friends at Calvary St. George’s Church. It’s a good thing most of the presentations below have to do with grace, as the very thought of trying to top it is incredibly scary…! Speaking of freebies, though, we are once again making the recordings available at no charge; we only ask that those who were not able to attend this year *consider* making a donation to help cover the cost of the event. Download links are followed by an in-line player for each recording. Unlike past years, everything was videotaped this time around, and we are hoping to have those files available next week. A few of the breakouts in particular won’t make much sense without the accompanying footage. Finally, at the bottom we have provided a link at the very bottom to download everything in one big file.
