    Note: I changed the end time to make an hour long instead of an hour and half, 20 minute discussion per video.

    I look forward to seeing those people who show up for Sunday's talk. Look for me in a bright red UH shirt.

    Also, we still have some issues concerning GPS location of the Cafe Express we eat at, so I like to help clarify this issue. Search for Lakewood church [old Summit arena], if heading east on SW freeway get off at Buffalo Speedway and button hook to the left at the lights and travel up the access road. You will encounter ongoing road construction on the far right lane. Travel up road, past Lakewood and turn right at the outlet center between the church and a Mercedes/BMW car dealer parking lot. Cafe Express is in the center of the outlet.

    If traveling west on SW freeway, get off at Buffalo Speedway exit, head west past lights along access road, and follow above instructions.

    Send in more video submissions everyone!
