One of the things about my road trip that most surprised me was how after nearly every college minister interview, I walked away with something new to think about. Likewise, many of my visits to college ministries gave new wrinkles to ponder.
Sometimes, these efforts at collaboration provided just a tidbit, but it was still something to process.
Other times, it was a lot closer to a paradigm shift.
Time and time again, notepad after notepad, I have been forced to think and rethink and even re-rethink. I’m sure as I go back through all those notes from last year, I’ll be rethinking all over again.
It’s fun. And kind of annoying sometimes.
But it’s why, when I had a weeklong road trip ahead of me, I decided to make it two weeks. I left home yesterday… Catalyst is Thursday and Friday… and there are lots of ways to get to Atlanta and back. And a whole lot of campus mission fields to explore in between.
I’ll be sharing; please be praying.
And maybe, just maybe, think about doing the same kind of collaborating where you are this week. There is so much to learn!
