5 sleeps till INSANE

a Biblical thought...
Hagar referred to the Lord, who had spoken to her, as "the God who sees me," for she said, "I have seen the One who sees me!" (Genesis 16:13)

a Book thought...
When we are in the midst of bewildering circumstances, that is not the time to make conclusions about what God is like. We should have already reached our conclusions before we entered the difficult experience. (p153)
a Dave thought...
As INSANE 2010 fast approaches everyone is making a huge effort to make this an outstanding youth event. We now have over 380 people coming for the 5 days at Mountain Valley. The goal of Insane 2010: Brave and True is to empower high-school age young people to live a life brave and true for Jesus. As a result we aim to move out of conference as corporate program and foster an event of spiritual transformation.

Within this event we aim to generate a culture and message that challenges young people in relevant ways. According to poll research, the largest influences on high-school age teen culture are peer bonding and multi-media entertainment. The two things teens love the most are their friends and their music.

As a result, Brave and True is not a polite Church service, a regimented conference or a conventional youth camp, but marries elements from all to offer young people what they value most. Brave and True aims to be a unique event that offers young people close community, peer workshops, scriptural teaching, multi-media communication and a lot of loud music. It is a new beast for a new generation.

The guiding scripture for Brave and True is 1 Corinthians 16:13 (The Message);

“Keep your eyes open, hold tight to your convictions, give it all you’ve got, be resolute, love without stopping.”

Just a thought.
