stepping out of anything familiar makes me nervous. on friday i’m heading to the canadian national youth workers conference in vancouver, doing a workshop for youth workers on re:focusing their youth ministry. spending time with all the youth workers from our church is a comfort thing but speaking to dozens of youth workers is really intimidating. they have put me in the same time slot as such other speakers as brett ullman, mark oestreicher, tic long and bruxy cavey. me and the 2 or 3 people who show up at 8am will all go to starbucks.
i’m not sleeping but i am focused. i know that what God has laid on my heart has been brewing there for a long time. i have something to say, i’m just not confident right now. nerves.
