Drinking from a Fire Hose
It is the end of an extremely long day. I woke up at 3:30am to catch a 6am flight to Seattle for the Multi-site Conference that Kim Working and I are attending. We have learned an immense amount already today from these churches and pastors who are on the front lines of the multi-site movement. There are many new ideas we are learning and many confirmations to things we are already doing and planning. The content is so rich and so plentiful that it is like drinking from a fire hose -- you can't possibly take in all the great content being dispensed. Our prayer has been that we would hear the things that God is showing us for our context. Tomorrow we finish the conference at 4pm and we are thinking of taking in a Seattle Mariners game to top the trip off. We return Wednesday afternoon back to Nashville and will hit the ground running again in regards to activating The Journey's multi-site mission. I will post tomorrow about the different things we are hearing discussed at the conference and from its attendees. God is doing great things all over the country and we are all a part of that as part of the local church. I'm going to bed! Talk to you all later.
