General Session 5
Mike Pilavachi spoke and it was amazing!! He challenged all of us to disciple students the way Jesus did. The miracle of raising Lazarus he let the people roll away the stone and take the burial garments off and he raised them. But he let them do what they could. He had the disciples to look for food to feed the 5000 they fed and collected the remaining food. We need to let our students do what they can and help them become great. I have been convicted about this over the conference. I need to do more disciplining of students.
Dark night of the Soul. John of the Cross writes about this at length and I think we all have times when God seems distance. Mark Yackonelli did a great job describing what this looks like compared to being burned out or depressed and how to deal with this.
We ate at the Sportsman Grille and watched the Titans get hammered by the Jets but my Patriots won!!! Tonight we are going to the Spaghetti Factory and skipping the general session to watch Sunday night football and bond.
