Lay Down Your Weary Tune (TX version) – David Zahl

We’re only just beginning to roll out the clips from our pair of Spring Conferences. Here’s the next installment from Tyler – same name but not the (exact) same talk as the Dylan-centric one DZ gave in New York a couple weeks later. Enjoy:

2015 Tyler Conference Recordings: Tangled Up in Grace

20150327193024_7509

A Texas-sized thank-you to everyone who helped put on our conference in Tyler last month, especially the fabulous–and ridiculously ecumenical–steering committee, led by the indefatigable Matt Magill. Huge thanks to all the sponsors as well: B3 Ministries, Bethel Bible, Christ Episcopal, Porch Culture Coffee Roasters, and True Vine Brewery, not to mention Mark and David Babikow, who once again came to our rescue on the A/V front. Vielen dank to Richard Dvorak for taking such awesome photos, too.

As per usual, we’re making the recordings available at no charge; we only ask that those who were not able to attend this year *consider* tossing something in the hat to help cover the cost of the event. Download links are followed by an in-line player for each session. The main sessions were also videotaped, and we’ll be rolling the clips out gradually over the next few weeks.
