Verge Conference #Verge12

I'm at Verge 2012. It's three days for me of the Gospel, and living it out as the Movement of Jesus through being on mission together as a community. I am awestruck by Jesus! 
I'll post notes when I type them.
Till then, watch live with me!

Today I was at the Connections Count conference of here in Lake Charles.  The keynote speaker, Jody Levinson-Johnson, shared a great presentation about the power of collaboration and partnerships in her field of coordinated care.

I thought about that very same thing in my field, city changing through the power of a Risen Lord.

She ended with this quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
