And today they come. Yesterday, about half of the Extravaganza planning team came in to the Hyatt in Anaheim, along with those leading the Practice Discipleship Initiative, to start the preparation. There were also a few random folks who came in early just to enjoy California. (And in the mid 70’s a beautiful, what’s not to enjoy?) Today the rest of the E-Team, and all of the Practice Discipleship Coaches, numbering 56, will be rolling in. And some more random folks will start checking in.
We’re pretty much ready, and all of the big pieces are in place. That leaves only some random details.
So today I’m going to ask all of you, whether you’re coming to the E or not, to please take a little time to pray for those who are traveling. Please pray for good weather. Please pray for safety. Please pray for spiritual renewal, for learning and for good connections.
The Extravaganza is more than an event. It is a community, an learning, worship and an accountability to each other. God is not dependent on our prayers. The Holy Spirit shows up because God promises it.
But we still pray, because that’s what God’s people, those who experience the relationship that makes all relationships possible, do.
So please join me in prayer today.
