Growing up in the 1970’s and 80’s you got to watch a lot of quiz shows on TV – many with a line that lingers long on the memory. Remember Sale of the Century – it was the “quiz of the week”. Perhaps my favourite was the intellectual gladiator-dome University Challenge with Bamber Gascoigne – way before Jeremy Paxman. At certain points he would say “No conferring”. That meant you are on your own – you must work out the answer on your own.
Some time back I had a very special opportunity do the exact opposite. A bunch of us gathered together to confer – work stuff out together – to progress together.
I was down south of Taupo (New Zealand) to attend a Leadership Conference looking at how to respond to the clear call on the Christian believer to be a bringer of the Gospel and a bringer of compassion for people. Two separate things. More on that distinction in an upcoming post.
Super conference – very stimulating, great time together, no hype, just a great time in God’s presence with God’s people.
I am linking to the resources generally on the Living Stones Leadership Training website but specifically recommending a special series of talks.

I would recommend each of them and in the order delivered. Lovely wife and I had very energising conversation with him during the conference – great bloke.
Have a listen and grow. And please do confer.
