I wish you could've joined me.
Every August our staff gets together for one week ("Seek Week") to re-focus on Jesus before we launch into a new year of ministry.
Every morning I head for the front row in the tabernacle, just underneath the podium, where I can take it all in without distraction.
This past week, I captured lots of great quotes, but didn't tweet them for fear I'd miss something better. So, now that it's all over, I thought I'd invite you to read a few of them. Enjoy!
