a trip to disney

Posted by slykwyk on April 27, 2010

Kara and I had the opportunity to go to Orlando last week.  Logistically we were near Disney World but the closest we got was Downtown Disney.  I mean, does Orlando exist WITHOUT Disney?  In my opinion, if you are in Orlando you are in Disney.  So technically we were not IN Disney but in the town Disney built.  So, a trip to ‘Disney’…

We were down in Orlando for the Exponential Conference.  This is a conference for church planters, church planting organizations, wanna be church planters, and people who want to get away for the week.  About 3500 people were a part of the conference this year.  If you are a New Lifer, know that you basically put this thing on every year.  That is HUGE!

Kara and I had a great time.  We spent quality time together alone – sans kids – were able to catch up with some close friends from NOVA, caught up with some of our new church planting friends, made new connections, and were challenged by the conference.

The one thing we learned as a couple was that in the end, it’s not about us but it’s about listening to the Holy Spirit and God’s leading.  When we do that, we have no clue where we can end up.  But who cares, because God is there leading us.  Probably something we all can use a reminder in…

Next year, if you get the chance, and whether you are a church planter or not, join the fray at Exponential!  It’s worth it!
