Day 2 is a wrap. An excellent day of information, affirmation and confirmation. I heard some very good stuff today that will put me in contact with some folks who can help us with some ideas and brainstorming. The music was much better today as well, but still some Powerpoint issues. The band was solid, and the vocalists were really phenom, especially the last girl that led - she had an awesome voice.
It was also a day of affirmation that we are on the right track with our visions and dreams. And finally it was a day of confirmation that God has given the green light on some upcoming projects. It will not be an easy stretch by any means, but I feel very confident that we have been chosen to carry out God's plans...even if we don't know exactly what that might look like yet. I love what Dave Ferguson had to say today (although he said it a few too many times!!). He said that "God Speaks. We step." Today we took that first step on God's journey for Meadow Heights. I can't help but think of Robert Frost and "The Road Not Taken." The road may not have been traveled yet, but our steps can begin to uncover the path towards the next junction in the road. Remember that life is not just a destination, but a journey to be enjoyed and experienced.
It's time for a bit of dinner, dessert, and maybe some discussion and downtime. Tomorrow our flights back into St. Louis, and I hope this time things are much smoother!
