OK, I said in an earlier post that I was taking a break from addressing frustrations in the “Emergent” camp. That lasted a couple days.

I came across a youtube video where Doug Pagitt offers some “reflection” on the terms emergence, Emergent, and the emerging church. You can view it here…

OK, I disappeared for awhile – sorry about that.

I won’t be going back to catch up the ball dropped on day two of Catalyst. If you were following Catalyst, you have already read all about it. If you want to know more, stop by the Catalyst Spacefor mroe info. If you are a church leader, I HIGHLY recommend Catalyst to you. I am a skeptic of conferences but Catalyst is different. Not only was there great instruction and challenge but the Holy Spirit moved in the heart and the worship! God gave us a fresh anointing and vision.

Since I have been home, God has been doing incredible things. We have felt a veil of protection from the new, renewed and the same old attacks that the enemy throws our way. I have a new heart of worship and purpose that I don’t want to lose. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying the conference did this, God has. I know God put it on our hearts to take the faith step to go and once we did, He opened up some new doors to us through His Spirit which we celebrate.

I say day one because the conference part started today. Yesterday was the pre labs….

It was a full day and I must admit, I probably should have waited to blog on all this when I got home after I rested and processed. I will do that later but here’s a quick overview before I fall asleep.

So we travel into the conference center which yesterday held about 1500 people but today is packed with about 12,000. We took in the sights as much is going on from a more artistic and experience oriented conference. There are multiple vendors, performers in the halls and outside, signs and other items of visual interest, a girl riding on the shoulders of a guy telling us the conference is about to begin, others passing out candy, and so on and so forth.

Well, I’m in Atlanta for Catalyst. I have a friend who pastor’s a church in the Smokies who tried to talk me into going last year but we ending up passing. This year, we were about to pass due to tighter funds at church but we felt, after a period of prayer and discussion that not only myself, but Josh who serves on the Leadership Team should both go.

We had a period of 30 days of prayer and fasting in our church to prepare and humble ourselves in preperation for the trip and what God might lay before us. We opened up a fund raiser to get the cash together and everyone chipped in. The only thing left was to go.
