Love Goes

This morning we wrapped up this year's JV Fall Conference, centered around the theme of the Great Commandment, loving God and loving others in order to renew the heart of youth ministry across Central and Eastern Europe.

Most every other fall conference has been more about skills and equipping the next generation of leaders with tools they can use in youth ministry.

But this year's conference was something quite different. It was more a conference of the heart...and we all loved it as we heard heartfelt teaching, entered into heartfelt worship, and ended today praying for each other with heartfelt prayers!

Because in the end, if we don't have love, we are only a resounding gong or clanging cymbal (1 Corinthians 13:1).

If we have love for one another, {and for God}, people will know we are his disciples (John 13:35).

We love because He first loved us (1 John 4:19).

And He loved us so much that He gave his only Son for us that we might not perish but have eternal life! (John 3:16)!

I was so busy loving people in our last hours of conference that I took no other photos than this one of Claire and I!

But it's a fitting end to a very impactful conference of receiving God's love, giving Him our love, and loving each I love my girl! ❤️
