I know it’s a day late but oh well. Here you go!
1 HILLSONG YOUNG & FREE - So this past weekend I was able to go to the Hillsong Conference (which was amazing!). And I got to see it all from the 3rd row! I never thought I’d be that close but hey, it was pretty awesome.
I don’t know if you’re familiar with Hillsong worship, but I’ve been listening to them for over a decade. There has got to be some sort of crazy anointing over this church considering the amount of pure worship that comes out of there.
Anyways, they just introduced the newest generation of Hillsong singers - Young & Free. It’s literally the next generation of youth kids who are bursting with new song. And it’s so awesome to see what God is doing in and through them (it mirrors exactly what happened to the then-current youth group 13 years ago with Hillsong United).
Anyways, I’ve been listening non stop. You should check them out: http://youtu.be/e33zCUm1ZnY
2 JUDAH SMITH IS NOW ONE OF MY NEW FAVORITE SPEAKERS - Um, yeah. Judah Smith spoke at one of the sessions at the conference and it completely just blew my mind. Not only is he incredibly funny, but he totally brought a very familiar parable to life. My Moleskine is now chocked full of notes.
Other random thoughts:
- his church is in Seattle, so you should check it out if you’re there
- he is not at all what I thought he’d look like
3 AWKWARD IS BACK - You guys! Awkward is back! And I’ve already seen the mid-season premiere and it’s quite interesting.
Did y’all watch it? What do you think?
Seriously, Jenna … what the heck is going on.
4 TRIP CANCELLATIONS - So I had these trips planned but was kind of on the fence about. It was supposed to be NorCal for the weekend and Uganda for the first two weeks in December. But they just didn’t pan out.
I’m sort of bummed but it’s OK. I kind of feel like I have to stay put for a little and rest/work. I feel like I’ve been nonworking for awhile and I need to get back into the swing of things.
I just realized that the photo I chose for this is a bad representation of how I actually feel. But I’m too lazy to find a different photo. But believe me, I’m not depressed! And love is not cancelled. I’m just in a selah moment.
5 IT’S FINALLY COOLING OFF HERE IN SOCAL - Granted it’s not super sweater weather yet … but I am wearing my Ugg boots. Then again it’s with shorts. Baby steps here.
I love cooler weather.
