Lausanne

Lausanne.

Today I feel very small.

I'm at a conference with over 200 people. As I look over the guest list most of them have words like "CEO" or "President" or "Vice-President" following their names. In front of their names are organizations like "Compassion International," "Food for the Hungry," and "Desiring God Ministries." Yeah. I feel small.

Lausanne has a dream: The WHOLE CHURCH taking the WHOLE GOSPEL to the WHOLE WORLD. I am kind of excited about that and I don't need a PHD to do it.

I'm here at the US Lausanne meeting because I was nominated and accepted a position as a delegate from the United States to the Third Global Congress for World Evangelization in Cape Town, South Africa in October. This is one of those things in life that I look at and shake my head because it is so much bigger than I am. It is one of those things that I couldn't make happen if I wanted to, and yet God opened the door and let me walk through it.

Thrilled doesn't begin to describe how I feel. I have a passion for seeing the young people of the Church love Jesus Christ so much that it changes their lives. I long to see the Church of tomorrow stronger, deeper, richer, and fuller than the church of today. I think Lausanne might help that.
