Back home with Onething on my mind…

… Learning more about the heart of God.

Just finished (midnight-ish) freeing four cars from the avalanche that is my apartment complex parking lot. While our gang of 12 disciples enjoyed the most intense 4-day spiritual quickening I could imagine, the cars were covered with a foot of fluffy snow. We went to IHOP’s Onething conference and came back a different tribe. It was absolutely incredible in more ways than I could ever communicate.

We drove through quite the mess the last 5.5 hours, which should have taken 3.5. Lots of cars in the ditches and a few accidents. But, the Lord and his hosts guided us safely home with no incidents whatsoever. And now we’re all charged with putting what we learn to work for the Kingdom.

I need to talk to the Lord about what my big take-aways are and which ones I need to focus on. Not sure what of it I’ll be sharing, but I’m sure the lessons will be floating to the surface over the next weeks, months and years.

Happy 2008! It’s going to be crazy good.
