After the Orange Conference at the end of April, I returned to Colorado and dove into end of the season ministry work and preparations for Kid's Camp 2008, our VBS experience. I've been working like crazy.
Next week, I'll be turning, 42, packing up all of the ministry supplies for a July and August church building remodel, celebrating the 4th of July and replacing the brakes on at least one of my cars.
On the 6th, I head up to Covenant Heights Camp to teach 4th-10th graders (not all at the same time) for a week in the mountains near Estes Park, Colorado. During the week I will totally relax while studying for the talks I'll give each day. I also plan to unpack my notes from the Orange Conference and look ahead to ministry plans for the next phases, 3 months, 9 months and beyond. I will also wake up my sleepy blog and start posting again on a consistent basis.
I've been learning a lot about what it means to live in humility; as in putting others first by giving up what i think i deserve. It's making a difference in my life and I'll share some thoughts later.
Follow me on Twitter at johnincolorado. My micro blog tweeting has been going strong while this macro blog has been sleeping.
Thanks for checking in. I'll see you in a couple of weeks.
