This is the view out our window at the downtown Hilton (Fort Wayne IN) this morning.
It's hard to know what it actually feels like outside when one has been cooped up inside
where temperature is so regulated -- but it looks very "soupy" and unpleasant, in my opinion!
Last night, Gary and I were gifted with matching orange T-shirts so we would be readily identified
as greeters at our denomination's biennial convention. I enjoyed our 3+ hour stint
(but BOY were my legs sore after standing in one place for so long)!
This morning, my husband is responsible for a prayer session that will meet in Parkview Field --
our local minor league team's stadium adjacent to the complex we're staying/meeting in.
The major part of today will be spent in business meetings.
Last night, our speaker, Dave Engbrecht, reminded us from I Corinthians 3:7 that
God Makes Things Grow.
He emphasized that it isn't formulas or new ideas that are responsible for
growth in churches, marriages, or any OTHER endeavor--but it's
God who Makes Things Grow.
Our part is to remove the barriers to growth.
A lot to think about. We left encouraged!
|Fog has cleared and from our window we can see 5 of the "at least 350 houses of worship" in this City of Churches.|
