back from Tulsa

I am a bad blogger. I spent three awesome and encouraging days at the Tulsa International Soul Winning Workshop, and I didn’t blog at all. Anyway, I attended some inspiring classes by Rick Atchley, Wade Hodges, Buddy Bell, Rubel Shelly, and Wade Hodges. The evening key notes were great. I got to visit with John Dobbs, who took my family’s picture. Thanks John!

I think one of the frustrations though that I have from any conference I attend, is how you bring home what you’ve learned. Change happens so slowly. Sometimes I get frustrated at how slow things move. I have grown though, when I was younger, I would have forced change, now change is something I understand as a slow process, that good can still be done before during and after the “change” whatever it is.

I come back from Tulsa each year renewed, challenged and filled. I am looking forward to getting to be there next year

    Great to see you Jason. They used to have classes like “How to Keep The FIre Going Without Burning Down The House” … to deal with the slow-to-change thing!
