Conferences

Posted: August 8, 2008 in church, conference, exercise, Leadership, Willow Creek

Every year I look at the list of conferences I’d like to attend and every year I find some reason not to go. The thought of attending a conference is not at that appealing to me. I, quite frankly, just have too much going on… or at least thats what I tell myself. I liken conferences to morning workouts. There are so many things that I would rather be doing, eating breakfast, reading my bible, watching the morning news show, SLEEPING! But there is nothing like the feeling you get after working out for a good hour in the morning. You feel refreshed, exhilarated and ready to go take on the world and whatever may come at you. Conferences are that way for me. There are about two million things I would rather do instead but there is nothing like the feeling I am left with after spending two full days listening to the experience and Godly wisdom of people who I admire and respect. Most of the time God uses them to give me a spiritual workout that I will never forget and in the end I feel refreshed and ready to take on the task God has put in front of me.

Today I listened to Craig Groeschel Teaching Pastor at of Life Church. He is an INCREDIBLE communicator. Best quote from Craig

“In order to reach those that no one else is reaching, we have to do things that no one else is doing.”

I cant get enough of his stuff!

Up next Chuck Colson. Gotta go!

    I really wanted to attend this, but I would have to take two vacation days which I couldn’t do. Let us know how the whole thing went! My family went to Lifechurch.tv for a while last year – Craig does have a gift to communicate.
