Cafe Conversations with Christ


IGNITION offered sacred spaces for all of us to have the important conversations. For many clearly prayers were the important dialogue; in general sessions, prayer rooms, encounters cafe, hallways — @ morning, night, and noon. Others found the discussion with others enriching; meeting up with old friends and new, learning and discovering.

What significantly impressed me were the prayers of leaders over those in attendance at IGNITION. There was no mere satisfaction in the numbers in the crowd, no pride in the bottom line, no desire for prestige or popularity. Those who put IGNITION together, as well as the overall summit, shared their deep convictions for transformation with GOD. We asked for a spiritual change in every person there. Sincere petitions went up asking GOD to pour out Himself on all of us.

I couldn’t help but feel, especially in the midst of the evening mix and energy of the encounters cafe, that this was a Jesus scene. He would likely be picking up his Irish Creme Steamer and finding a cozy spot on the sofa. There would be small talk, profound conversation, and most certainly laughter.

As we offered worship to the Father, I have no doubt Christ too enjoyed adding His adoration to ours of the “GOD of wonder.”

And even as our conversations may have moved to focus on others, it felt as if Jesus was listening intently, casually smiling and taking in the rich fellowship we all were sharing. In my mind IGNITION was definitely a Jesus scene. And for me, the cafe conversations with Christ were rich.
