The hidden value of going to a conference
Why go to a conference anyway?
It's just another word for all-day-church-service-in-a-school, right?
We can attend because there are back to back messages, we can go because we're looking to be challenged, we can show up simply because it's expected of us or because our family drags us there...
Every year as I sit in an auditorium much larger than my own assembly's space and participate in the singing and listen to the messages, another thing strikes me and has for years.
I AM NOT ALONE IN THIS CHRISTIAN LIFE!
That's a hidden value.
