Rambling on about who knows what

I had a busy weekend, but it was good. I know that I haven't posted much lately. I have a theory about that. Blogging is a winter sport and when spring time roles around you simply lose the momentum that was once so strong. I promised that I would let you guys know more about the conference, so here goes.

The second night was awesome. Pastor Eric Reeder is one of the leaders of the emerging generation. He spoke that night, and it was very powerful. His heart is for this generation and to see us walk in our destiny. One of the best things about this is that he is not advocating the usual, the youth need to rebel against the oppression of the older generations. He is instead saying that we need to work together with the older generation in order to see true transformation in the church.

If anybody is not following this at all let me know and I will try to make it clearer.

We have a destiny to change our country. God is going to start moving in each of our lives in ways that we have never seen before. You may not think that you can make a difference, and you may not even want to make a difference, but I believe that God has other plans. Give me any reason you want about how we are too young, or the government can never change, or the moral decay has gone to far, and I have to tell you that the God I serve is bigger.

I guess that is all for now. This is also what I call my rambling format, so if anything needs clarified, let me know.

And thus I succumb

I appear to have given into peer pressure, and it has been quite fun reading reading all of your wonderful comments in the meantime. I wonder if I will get this much traffic on my blog by just writing? I would like to quote a very famous person who once said that absence makes the heart grow fonder. I have no idea who this person actually was, however they must have been famous because I have heard that one a lot.

As most of you know, I am currently at a church conference in Marietta, OH. It has been really good so far. The focus so far seems to be on connecting the generations. For those of you who do not understand this, it is all about the older people, or the current generation, working with us younger people, known as the emerging generation.

The really cool part is that everything that they are talking about in this conference is stuff that we are already doing here at home in COTK.

We have had a lot of fun here, and it is really good. I will let you guys know of anything else I think about, although I do need to go right now.

Talk to you guys later.
