Briefly… It was pretty special.
This morning, I was reflecting on our retreat. Often, when I am in the middle of leading something, it’s easy to not notice what’s happening.
For years now, I have been praying for a movement of mission and discipleship on the First Coast – and that the Lord, in his grace, would allow me to be a part of it. This weekend, I was on retreat with a couple of dozen people. The gathering was a pretty good representation of the diversity of our city (with three visitors from Orlando for good measure). In our diversity we were united around our love for Christ and our desire to see God’s kingdom come and God’s will being done on the First Coast as it is in heaven. I got to spend the weekend with two dozen people who were seeking clarity about the way the Lord is calling them as they serve him on mission in the First Coast.
Sometimes, it’s easy to miss, to fail to notice, that an answered prayer is right there.
You know, I hope I get to write more about the retreat.
God is good!
