Tomorrow morning, Mike & I hit the road and drive down to The Soliton Sessions. Wow, when I went last year, I still had a job. I remember telling my friends at work that I was going on a pilgrimage, because “I’m going to a conference” doesn’t capture it. It was a long trip I made as a spiritual discipline, to draw closer to God — a pilgrimage.
Yesterday I spoke on the phone with former (and future?) blogger Jared. And now I remember that the best part of The Sessions is not the incredible worship in a great venue, or the mind-blowing talks — it’s hanging out together, getting to know some wonderful people, letting our journeys towards God and with God cross and overlap.
Is Jared’s butt really better-looking now that he has lost 60 pounds? Will his lovely wife Regina inspire me to new directions in worship-leading again? Are Jeph and Greg as nutty as their blogs indicate, and as we crash on Jared & Regina’s floor, will we get all snuggly in the middle of the night dreaming about our wives?
