ICOM 2014

1416314561532-1019342269What a great weekend.   It had been years since I went to a major conference or gathering like this.

Several thousand of some of the very best in church life and mission.

The theme was Vertical. Standing in the midst of Exhibition Hall it was easy to think horizonal.  Imagining how these many missions and support groups fan out from the U.S. to reach around the globe.

But what about reaching vertically?

If God is for us – who can be against us?   Yet so often we focus on the programs and plans here on a horizontal plane and miss the heavenly connection.

As a disciple seeking to reach horizontally across the street or across town – what effort is made to maintain the Vertical connection?

Good conference.    Even better challenge.
