Going to the Summit

I attended the Willow Creek Association's Leadership Summit this past weekend. Okay, I sat at the remote broadcast at First Baptist, Lewisville.

(By the way, I really can't gripe about the whole multi-site church movement. I sat and watched broadcast and video taped speakers for two and a half days and didn't think twice about needed to be in the room with the speaker. I hate it when my experience destroys my thoughts! I still believe live, in-the-room speakers are best...Until, of course, we open our first multi-site venue ;-)

I must admit that while all the information was awesome, my serendipity was the Bono interview. Yes, U2's lead man is doing more to call the church to global issues than any other religious figure at the time. This will sound strange, but he is Billy Graham to the younger generation, and they trust and join him. He really believes we can stop poverty in our time, and he has put the church on notice that we must join him or lose the trust of those…
