Reflections from CREDO
Many of you know I spent the past 8 days at the PCUSA Board of Pension's CREDO Conference. For the next few weeks, I am going to share some reflections from that conference.
First and foremost, I appreciate your prayers and support. It was an amazing experience that has helped and will continue to help me grow as a disciple, as a pastor, and as a child of God. But, many of you have never heard of CREDO and have no idea what I was doing or why I went!
CREDO is a conference that is specifically designed for teaching elders (Preachers) to help them cultivate their spiritual, vocational, health, and financial well-being, as well as their leadership potential. You can learn more about the conference from:
CREDO is more than just a conference. Many times, we think the word "credo" means "I believe." But, it also means, "I give my heart to." I and twenty-seven other Presbyterian pastors from all over the US gathered at Mo-Ranch Conference Center in Hunt, Texas to pray about and consider and be challenged about what we give our hearts to. It was a wonderful, challenging, and holy time.

I walked out one morning to start my day and stopped and went back into the room to grab my phone to take a picture because the sunrise was so beautiful.
Worship The Lord!
Worship was a central part of our experience.

God's light shines through in many different ways and all creation reminds us of the majesty of our Creator.
