IF YOU COULD NAME IT

I am deep into March '07 workshop and am putting intial touches to the '08 one (Garnett is taking a break so Memorial has it for '07/'08/'09...and we are quite pumped!). We are seriously looking at the theme for '08 of "PRAYER: Our Declaration of Dependence"

If you were in my chair would you go with that theme? Do you have other ideas?

I might change one word so it reads: Disciple's Declaration of Dependence. But then I always admire alliteration.

I like stoogelover's idea... but I'm afraid it'd read like D-Day with a slight stutter. :)

Theresa,


When Stoolelover said he admired alliteration I didn't know whether I had or had not alliterated. I exfoliated once and about made myself sick.

Terry Rush said...

Ooops, Theresa, I meant to say Stoogelover instead of Stoolelover! Therefore, did I alliterate or exfoliate....or did I maybe do both?

Terry,

I like "Declaration of Dependence" by itself. We want to be independant thinkers, we want our kids to be independent and to stand on their own. The workplace despises weakness, yet what the workplace really needs is for people to stand up together and help fix their companies instead of fighting it out among each department. The people I look up to the most in this world are people who are smart enough to know that they are dependant upon Him and others to get by. I think I just wrote a blog in one comment!
Counting the days down here in Atlanta!

Either way I think a workshop on Prayer will be great. If you go w/ stoogelover's you could call it D3(Cubed).

Terry, I love your idea! Now that I am back in this part of the country, I hope that I am able to attend!!

I love the theme of Prayer! We have tapped into it so little and there is such power there. Great Idea!!

Terry, sounds great to me! I have confidence in the fact that God will use whatever title you decide on for HIS glory.

Merry Christmas,

I LOVE IT! :o)

I love it too! There is so much unexplored territory and untapped power in prayer. I think there are so many ways to pray (types of prayers) that are yet to be experienced. Our relationship with God is just like any other relationship, communication is key to keeping the relationship alive! I say go for it!

I'm all for anything on prayer! No matter what you name it:o)

How about a slight variation that makes it sound more like the play on words of the historical document - "PRAYER: Declaration In Dependence." or PRAYER: Our Declaration In Dependence.

Any time we center on God, good things happen! God bless with your planning. You will be in my prayers - now that's practical!

Maybe there could be people praying 24/7 during the workshop = a context of prayer surrounding it.

I like it. Steven Curtis Chapman wrote a song called "Declaration of Dependence." it is one of my favorites. You could invite him...:-)

I think that may be called obliterating. But I'm not an expert. :)

Dear Terry: I think a workshop on prayer, whatever it is called would be great. In reference to your previous blog on truth in the church, I think that could be a good subject too. Are we ready to say from the pulpit what many of our members already believe and practice. I know at Garnett we really struggle with this. Why do we have to keep going along with what we know is not truth? Why is it so wrong to do things differently? Why are we binding people with these things? Can I be a preacher now? Love ya, Lynn

I love it just the way you said it. It makes it very personal. I think "disciples" might be too much for the younger audience.

I would really like to see

"QUIET: Shutting Up In the Presence of God"

But I doubt that Memorial would dare go that far....
