So yesterday was the first day of the National Youth Workers' Convention in Atlanta. This is the second time that I've gone with my wife, and the third time that I've gone total. It's a lot more fun having my wife there. Sometimes I can be a little bit too into the art side of things, and usually she's able to be more realistic in that respect.
General session was pretty good. The band was Flatfoot 56, a Celtic punk band. They were awesome. Really old-school true punk sounding. It's cool too because it sounds like they are accepted in the punk scene and play a lot in bars as opposed to the usual Christian band that bounces around churches, conferences, and festivals.
Andy Stanley spoke yesterday afternoon about what to do when you realize that you are the most powerful person in the room (serve). This was the first time that I've heard him since reading his book about how he creates his messages (Communicating For A Change).
There was also this cool sand/light artist guy. Interesting. JM
