Austin, Religion Writers and Artifacts

I'm in Austin, Texas at the Religion Newswriters Association conference this week. Austin is a beautiful city. We had the opportunity to visit the capital yesterday for the preconference. It is a stately and elegant complex. At the event, my client The Green Scholars Initiative, announced the discovery of the oldest known Jewish prayer book.

Later, we were treated to a preview of an upcoming film called The Identical. A faith-and-family-friendly flick, the film tells the story of twins separated at birth and how their paths converge. Actor Ray Liotta, who plays a minister who raises one of the twins, was on hand to promote the film. He shared how playing a minister led him to read scripture and begin a journey. He seems to be a pretty genuine guy. He was very open to pictures and meeting people, self depreciating and maybe a little "Good Fellas."
We enjoyed the film and the great music afterwards. Thanks to City of Peace productions for the fun evening.
