“There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.” -Vincent van Gogh
Today was the first day of the Connect conference. I really look forward to this time each year to meet up with friends from all over Europe and meet new people as well. This year for the conference we are staying at a camp about two hours north of Lisbon, Portugal.
During the first evening session, our president Linus spoke about the history of Christian Associates (CA) and how he fell in love with Europe. This time was really encouraging for me and reminded me of my own journey of getting to Prague and the reason I continue to pursue ministry there. As Matthew 22 states: Love God and love others. And love for others should flow naturally out of our love for God. I believe I truly have fallen in love with the Czech people and the city of Prague. Tonight was really inspiring!
A great start to what I am sure will be an awesome week!
