Band-of-Bloggers_2012-horizontal-bannerBand of Bloggers is a yearly event for Christian bloggers which began in 2006. I’ve had the pleasure of taking part in all but the first Band of Bloggers, and am excited that registration is now open for the 2012 Band of Bloggers: From An Underestimated Resurgence here in Louisville on April 10. For $15 you get to attend, each lunch and receive 17 books, from a variety of publishers. That, my friends, is an amazing deal. Learn more at the link above, or go straight to the registration form here – it will sell out quickly. Below, I’ll share some thoughts on this event and a gallery of past event photos, taken by my Sojourn photography deacon Chuck Heeke.

But first, check out Tony Kummer‘s 4-minute recap of the 2010 Band of Bloggers in Louisville. And take note of the spiffy 4×4 Ford Explorer from which volunteers are removing gift bags full of free books for attendees. That’s mine. My truck, the video star. And the song in the background is “Mourning Into Dancing,” written by my friend Jeremy Quillo and recorded by Sojourn.

This year, the discussion will consider the impact –good and bad– of blogging and technology in the church, particularly what is sometimes called the Young, Restless, and Reformed movement.

Every year I’ve attended, I’ve met new friends, enjoyed catching up with old ones, and come away with new insights …

… as well as a renewed dedication to blog for the cause of Christ.

As I said above, your $15 registration includes lunch, and a slew of books. The value is way beyond the price of registration.
