One More Day

The staff is starting to arrive at the Adam’s Mark in Dallas for IGNITION, the North American Division young adult summit. I’ve invited some presenters and participants to join this blog, and over the next few days we’ll be posting some of our thoughts and observations about the gathering. If you’re in Dallas, be sure to say hello!

    Great. I’m looking forward to reading some live blogging of the events — particularly on the conversations surrounding social justice.

    Alexander,
    Social Justice —–Been doing a lot of reading on this lately. Two books in the last two weeks. Finished them entirely. And, I just went to hear Kay Warren, author of one of the books I just finished “Dangerous Surrender”(Kay is the wife of Rick Warren). She spoke on the aids pandemic and God’s call on her life to be a voice for the least of these in our world.

    2nd book I read – Terrify no more – book on the organization, International Justice Mission. Sobering topic – the child prostitutes and sexual trafficking in our world.

    In the words of Kay Warren, I’m seriously disturbed and gloriously ruined by what I am reading and realizing that I need to be dangerously surrendered to Christ.

    I’ll write more later.

    Alexander,

    On the social justice front, there was some great opportunities for equipping (i.e. Eddy Hipolite’s presentation on urban ministry), but we also wanted to leave a compassion imprint on the metro Dallas/Ft Worth scene.

    IGNITION partnered with Passion Regional’s Do Something Now campaign (http://www.268generation.com/regionals07/):

    “Together we can make a change in the world and the Church should lead that change. We’re partnering with those who serve the homeless in Dallas/Fort Worth by asking every person attending the Summit to bring a bath towel and a package of socks (they usually come in 6 or 12) as a way of spreading the Kingdom to the least of these throughout the city. Many of us loaded up an extra towel and socks for men, women, or children and help us say to those in transitional places that they matter to GOD.”

    Upon arriving to IGNITION we deposited our bath towels and packages of socks. Then Pierre Monice, pmonice@aol.com, and his team took our collected items and brought them to Passion Regionals where over 5K college students were gathered for God’s renown.

    More than just talkin, we had a chance to match it with some walkin.
