2020 has been named my ‘Year of Hindsight’ (because hindsight is always 2020). I have been on the road since 2008, and I am trying not to do as much this year in order to work on creative projects (at least three books in the works and other possibilities) and be home. We now have 12 grandchildren who are ages two to twelve and they are among the best of reasons to pull back a bit. So, I am attempting to push off most of the invitations, especially international, to 2021.
If you have an interest in having me come to speak, please contact Wes Yoder at firstname.lastname@example.org
Below, here are events for which I am currently scheduled in 2020 with more dates to be added as they become firm. I will try and indicate a contact avenue or person especially if they are Open to the Public and you would like more information.

Orlando, FL: Leap of Faith Conference
February 29 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Leap of Faith Conference, tentatively at St. Stephen Catholic Community Church
Conversations between Steve Brown, Talk the Walk: How to Be Right Without Being Insufferable, and Paul Young, Lies We Believe About God
Corporate Systems Consultants is pleased to present two internationally known authors on stage together for the first time. Both prominent theologians share a creative writing style that simplifies the most difficult issues.
Paul is best known for his blockbuster novel, The Shack, later released as a movie. Two more provocative novels followed, Cross Roads and Eve, which are also headed for film. In Paul’s first non-fiction, Lies We Believe about God, each essay examines a different ‘lie’ promoted by society as truth.
Steve’s latest book, Talk the Walk: How to Be Right without Being Insufferable, challenges readers to boldly question their beliefs, and to be even bolder in living them. Saying
the simple Truth of the Gospel may sometimes be costly in relationships. This free-style dialogue will present Truth from their personal perspectives.
Since the Reformation schism fractured Christianity into shards of categories that separate and divide, there has been too little emphasis on the many beliefs that are shared like The Apostles Creed. A Socratic dialogue between two scholars, such as Paul Young and Steve Brown, will set the stage for such healing.
Monseigneur John Bluett’s St. Stephen Catholic Community Church, of Winter Springs, is the hosting venue for the event. After many years at St. Margaret Mary Church in Winter Springs, Father Bluett started St. Stephen, and has pastored there for over thirty-five years.
Nationally recognized alto saxophone artist, Antonio Allen, will provide musical interludes from his most recent CD, My Journey.
Throughout the day, as Steve and Paul present, a panel of five scholars will field questions about earlier parts of the dialogue. Questions from the floor will also be possible.
