pd worship day #1

Wow...the conference started with a bang! There was a great time of worship lead by Rick Muchow from Saddleback. The team was amazing and it was so refreshing to just sing at the top of my lungs in worship to God. Looking forward to more of this...

Rick Warren gave the keynote address and did an amazing job. He talked on worship...big suprise...but gave some great testimonies about his journey in starting Saddleback. This was especially interesting to me being from a church plant. One big thing that hit me between the eyes was what he had to say about worry. He said that when we worry we are trying to do God's job...we are trying to prove to God that we are helping Him. But....The antidote to worry is worship.

The Saddleback campus is really outstanding...very different from anything I have ever seen. My one big observation today is that their value on community is strongly expressed in their architecture.

Got to meet up with Carlos Whittaker of the blog world. It's awesome that blogs can connect us in ministry even on opposite coasts!
