Just posting a few pics about the China trip. Be praying for me as I have been asked to consider going back again next year. Of course it is God's call, but at the moment I am not clear on that response yet. In some ways, it is such an amazing trip and in other ways it is such a hard trip (not that I want to shy away from anything for being hard -just check out my installed attic fan for proof). Thanks so much for the CG support of this trip.

So... what are your thoughts on IT? Here are mine:

1. It could be very exciting - I'm looking forward to hearing more about it, since there wasn't as much detail as I would have liked.
2. There's a part of me that's cynical, since I've seen Southland go through strategy changes about as often as product generations at a certain company I know of.
3. What makes me the saddest though is that after all the hype and the comments, I was expecting something Lexington-wide. Something that included all the churches in Lexington and allowed us all to work together to change our community. After the message from the stage this weekend, I'm still not seeing a willingness to do anything like that. This is a Southland thing and only a Southland thing, and that makes me sad. What's the challenge to the community at large?

Those are my 2 cents so far, but am still ruminating. What are your thoughts?
