Home from Flourish 2009
Written by Plant With Purpose on May 19, 2009 in General
Doug and I just returned from the Flourish conference at Cross Pointe Church in Atlanta.
What a wonderful and refreshing few days! We had a tremendous list of great speakers, among them Joel Hunter, JoAnne Lyon, Andy Crouch, Chris Seay, Rusty Pritchard, Tri Robinson, Mathew Sleeth, and Peter Illyn.
The conference was under-attended, which I am sadly getting used to, but it was a wonderful opportunity to meet and mix with a wide variety of people working in creation care, and to share with them a little of the work that we are doing.
Finally, it was a blessing to catch up with so many old friends, many of whom have been involved in this work as long as I have, as well as to meet so many of the new voices. Jonathan Merritt and his father James Merritt, who pastors Cross Pointe, were our hosts.
David Neff of Christianity Today provides a bit of a summary of the conference in his blog.
Jonathan Merritt also shares his analysis.
