Twin Lakes Fellowship - 2007

This gathering of pastors officially goes until Thursday, but I left camp a little while ago (Wednesday night) in order to crash at a hotel near the airport here in Jackson, MS, and catch an early flight home in time to celebrate our youngest daughter's 13th birthday (Thursday, April 12).
Overall, it's been a great week at Twin Lakes. It was good to sit among 200+ men, just one of many, receiving exhortations from the pulpit in areas of forgiveness, reaching out to those nearby, crossing over racial and cultural divides, etc. I appreciated the times of worship, and singing, and prayer, and the reading of God's Word. I was energized again with hearing of God's past work of amazing grace in the lives of these men, as well seeing their heart's desire for new breakthroughs of revival in many different places. I got reacquainted with several guys I'd met over the past year, and added some new friends ... guys young and old who expressed such great appreciation for the work of the Banner of Truth. An additional benefit, something I really enjoyed and am thankful for, was time spent with reformed Christianity's "blogger friend," Tim Challies (for details of the week, see Tim's posts, blogged live, at www.challies.com). Providentially, Tim and I ended up sharing the same room in the same cabin which lent itself to several late nights of good conversation. Thanks, Tim; I welcome and appreciate your new friendship. And thank you, Ligon Duncan and all of your staff, along with the Twin Lakes staff for another gathering that was executed so well. God is using this event; that was quite apparent.
As for me, time now for a few short hours of sleep here at the hotel before flying to Atlanta and on to Harrisburg, PA. Grace & peace. Steve.

Hello Steve,
It is good to know that your blog is out here, and the Banner of Truth Website looks like it has a lot of good stuff to offer. Please drop by my blog sometime. I'm also a friend and classmate of the "A Thousand Times" blogger. I see that you have been in the Jackson, Miss. area. We have some relatives living in the Miss. state. And the pictures remind me of being there.
Take Care!
Grace and Peace,
Chris
