  1. >Also, if anyone goes, I would like to hear about the breakout session topics regarding “spiritual formation.” I remember when my wife and I traveled to about an hour south of Cancun last year, we stayed at an all exclusive resort, the Aventura Spa Palace – Thank you Lord for creating my wife so smart (she won the trip from her work :). In between the many columns of buildings were various points of interest. One of the garden sections in between the buildings was this approximately 1.4 mile giant S-shaped Labyrinth. There were so many people doing the real thing right there where we were staying. In fact, many people traveled down the resort just for the purpose of doing the labyrinth because it was one of a kind. Granted, I could not help my curiosity over it, and I actually walked through it while reading Puritan Prayers. I know of the various stations and what not, but I did not want to really experience what some of the Emergents are doing with it, I just wanted the exercise and decided to spiritualize it a bit by reading from the Puritan Prayer book. My wife got bored about 1/2 way through and went back to the pool, lol 🙂 Anyways, I digress, if anyone gets some info on the spiritual formation, I would be interested to hear about it. Thanks and blessings.

  2. >Let me know if anyone is going to the January event. I can’t make it but I’d like to hear what they have to say in the “Pre-School & Children’s Ministries in Church Plants” session. That’s something I’ve wondered about.
