I started to write that I was feeling "a little giddy" as we approach the beginning of the General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), but using the word "little" to describe my giddiness is an understatement. I know I’m nerdy about church stuff, but our theme this year, The Kindom of God, is really resonating with me, especially as I will see a few thousand of my denominational siblings over the next few days. One of the things I really enjoy, especially because Cypress Creek Christian Church is sending such a great delegation, is introducing old friends to new folks. I have been known to say to two people who are just meeting for the first time, "The world is a little better and brighter because two amazing people know each other today." I believe the world will be a little better because, in just a few days, we will be able to say, "The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) gathered in Louisville, Kentucky."
Whether it is powerful worship, inspiring keynotes, informative workshops, or a good conversation over a meal, I ask for an awareness of as many blessings as I am able to discern and appreciate. I believe you to be the Source and Joy of this gathering, O Lord of Light. Amen
