The conference is underway. Already had the opportunity to meet up with several friends. The best part of most conferences are these times of reconnection. Also got to meet a reader of this blog, Jason Kovacs and his wife Shawnda, for the first time and share transracial adoption stories.
Tim Lane opened the conference by meditating on Acts 18 where Paul is facing attack from local Jewish officials. Tim connected this situation with a verse in 1 Cor 2:1 where Paul says he came in fear and anxiety and the Lord’s answer in Acts 18 that He will be with him in spite of the real attack that is all around him. Why? Because God has many people there and has a mission.
Do most of us think that God has a mission for us and is with us and will guide us?
