The trip was a whirl wind but I mean that in a good way. When you take out all of the traveling ramifications we spent about 36 packed hours in PA. Those hours were filled with the book release party, meetings with potential authors and board members, catching up with friends, and participating in the weekly Alpha gathering. I always return from trips like this refreshed. My physical body is always a bit tired from traveling and lack of sleep but my soul is regenerated. I love seeing how God is working in other parts of the world. These trips expand my vision and gives me the proper perspective that God is doing stuff beyond my little world. I am tapped into a greater story and that excites me!

The book release was a joyous celebration. Thank you to all that attended. If you weren’t able to make it (I know geographically it was impossible for most of you) I encourage you to order your copy of Carol King’s The Empty Cross from our website. As she read a few selections from the book I was reminded of the power of poetry. Psalms are filled with people’s expressions to God. It is amazing to hear and read the modern day Psalms ofpresent day saints.

Alpha was nothing short of amazing! Packing 60ish kids into a basement that are all hungry for God can’t be anything less than Acts 2-church kind of goodness. I tried to encourage those present from Jesus’ interaction with the Samaritan woman in John 4. I am praying many of these students will actively be looking for people to initiate friendships with that do not look or act exactly like them. Who knows what God may do through these committed followers of Jesus!
