I just returned from the Advance 2011 conference with about four of the staff. We had a very encouraging and edifying time. The theme of the conference was the Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary. I know! You are so surprised I would go to a conference like that and bring some staff (sarcasm alert!). But seriously, what an important message that we benefited from, and I hope you feel the benefit as we pour out from our hearts some of the vision and energy we received at the conference. I would encourage you to listen to some of the talks as they get posted online shortly. The ones I was blessed by most were by Derrin Patrick and Tim Keller.
