This morning, I attended the Austin Area Church Planter’s Network meeting for the first time. It’s absolutely humbling to see and meet the men God is calling to start new churches in Austin. Matt Carter from The Austin Stone came and spoke to us and challenged us to live with a holy urgency.
Then I met with a local pastor for lunch who was incredibly encouraging and I look forward to spending more time in conversation with him. He has some great experience with church planting and church planters and I look forward to learning as much as I can from him.
After lunch, I took my Bible and my journal to Starbucks, where I found my happy place. For some crazy reason, it’s so much easier for me to focus and dig deep into God’s Word with a cup of coffee in my hand. The atmosphere, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, the ambiance, the music, the people – they all help me to fall into God’s Word with an incredible focus and attentiveness.
And so I ask you, where is your happy place? Where do you find it easiest to find focus on God and in God’s Word?
