One-God Seminar set for near Dallas
SEATTLE, Wash.--Ken Westby announces plans for his One-God Seminar, the eighth annual discussion of the nature of Jesus, for Grapevine, Texas, near Fort Worth and Dallas, the weekend of June 13-14, 2009.
"We have chosen the Hilton DFW Lakes Hotel for our location," Mr. Westby said. "It is just two miles from DFW airport and has shuttle service so out-of-town folks need not rent a car.
"It is a five-star 90-acre resort-type hotel with lots of amenities and nearby attractions. They have offered us an excellent rate on sleeping rooms and a meeting room.
"I thank my old friend Merle Vines for helping secure these arrangements. Merle is head of security for the huge hotel complex."

CLEVELAND, Ohio--John Carnack has a new Web log called "COG Perspective" at cogperspective.blogspot.com.
"It is a blog to discuss major doctrines of the Church of God movement and current events through that filter," Mr. Carnack said. "It is not tied to any one COG organization, and discussing difference in doctrines is permitted.
"It is not a site for bashing HWA, GTA or even AC, as we have far too many sites for that already. All you need to participate is a Blogeer, Google or OpenID login."
