I was pretty amazed at the response my last post ended up having, some good points being made from differing views and although some of them were pretty strong I appreciate the fact that people are taking the time to read and to comment on different points.
As some of you know I'm running our church youth camp this weekend and we've had an incredible response of registrations come in, surpassing our expectations of numbers for the weekend. It's really exciting seeing the amount of people that have registered for the camp, entitled "Connect 08" - Connecting with mates and connecting with God - a time that's going to be an awesome time of hanging out together and being in a great environment.
I'm still struggling with my SuperHero costume as Mr. Incredible but hopefully I'll have that sorted in time for the weekend.We're really expecting an awesome time of not only hanging out together, but also seeing God show up in a really awesome way. In my experience, when we put ourselves in an environment where we're not trying to do anything put-on-ish but are just open and hungry for God to show up great stuff happens.
I know that from some of the previous comments on the latest post that disagreement is likely, but God has done incredible things in my life in a way I couldn't have come up with on my own when I've been honest with Him and been hungry for Him to do something in my life. I'm looking forward to seeing what God does this weekend in my life and in the lives of those going. I'll keep you posted on what will definitely be an amazing weekend with God and mates... and some pretty full-on superhero costumes.
