What am I most surprised by?

The demographics of the conference. I don't have anything to go on but observation. But there seems to be quite a large group of boomers and older. Maybe even half?? This conference has really delivered on the promise of denominational and age diversity. Catholic, Anabaptist, Mainline, Evangelical, etc. We're all here.

What am I most disappointed by? We look about 99% white. This was an issue of great conversation at Glorietta in 2007. Has there been much progress? How do we make progress?? Please someone give me an answer. If we miss it on diversity, we have missed it completely.
