What a Gathering!

I attended a meeting today of pastors.  Three amazing things took place at this meeting.

1) There were 18 in attendance.  Some of them had driven for more than an hour to get there just for the privilege of being able to meet together.

2) Not one single individual was there for the purpose of engaging in denominational politics.  Not one person patted me on the back.  This was so refreshing.

3) The waiter (yes the waiter) thanked the group for the encouragement we had given to him!  I have never experience this before.

It was so good to gather with other ministers and feel the presence of the Holy Spirit!  This kind of encounter I hope is habit forming!
