I'm back. I am still processing my thoughts and feelings about the weekend, so it might take a while to share what the teaching will mean in my own life.
I have no doubt that being there this weekend was timely for me.
I went expecting to be among friendly strangers, however as soon as I arrived in the hotel lobby, I saw people I knew.
There were people there from two churches where my husband and I had taught classes. It was great seeing familiar faces.
Our former church used to bring in quite a few speakers to our area. As leadership, we were involved behind the scenes and had quite a bit of one-on-one interaction with the speakers. I haven't been in the position of a general attendee at a conference in a long time.
I would have liked to sit down and visit with Graham, but I didn't know how to initiate a conversation with him without looking like a groupie and overstepping his space.
The thing I appreciated most about the weekend was that he lifted up the Lord all weekend. I didn't feel like he pointed toward himself or his ministry, nor did he prostitute his anointing to exalt himself.
His message was what I needed, depth without hype.
Worship was good too. Have you ever seen line dancing in worship?
