We’ve had an exciting couple of days here at Church of the Resurrection.
Yesterday, I had the chance to present on Web Empowered Church with Mark Stephenson of Ginghamsburg Church and The Appian Way’s own Chuck Russell. We had a great time with the people who attended this 4-hour intensive workshop. I know many of them felt like their heads (and other body parts) exploded part way through because of the workshop’s length and intensity, but everyone stayed to the end, for which I was greatful.
In the morning plenary session today, we heard from Rev. Adam Hamilton, our senior pastor. The band was great. The worship technology/media people hit a grand slam. And Adam was as awesome as ever. This afternoon, Chuck and Mark reprised their presentations from yesterday, with many positive responses. All of it reminded me of why it’s so great to be part of Resurrection.
Tonight, Adam had me in tears when he talked about having a Magnificent Obsession with Jesus and then related it to the love he has for his daughter who just last month went off to Kansas State as a freshman. The time is coming for me next year – my daughter is a senior in high school now, so it was very close to home.
And when I got back to the computer, Technorati led me to this blogger’s account of his time at Leadership Institute yesterday. Will he post again?
WOW! What an awesome event! Everything at the Leadership Institute 2005 was done with excellence and a passion for Christ and the Church. Thank you for allowing me participate. It was a real joy to be able to share about Web-Empowered Church (http://WebEmpoweredChurch) to large audiences filled with pasionate Christian Leaders. COR does it well and sets an example for us all. In Christ, Mark
