AWARE Conference - Day 1

I’m writing this from Elim Lodge in Peterborough. On our drive up here, Deanna and I went from skyscrapers to country fields. We’re staying in a great little cabin that’s just a few feet from the water. We have plans for tea by the lake tomorrow afternoon.

We’re here in the middle of the woods with over a hundred Anglican women who are ready to sing, socialize, and get spiritual. Deanna and I opened tonight’s session with a vibrant time of worship. We did songs like “Days of Elijah,” “Shine, Jesus, Shine,” and “Majesty.” They loved all the songs, and sang and danced with gusto!

The theme of the weekend is Transformation, based on Romans 12:1-2. The speaker, Melanie Hart, is also a singer-songwriter, and she ended tonight’s session with testimony and a powerful song about forgiveness and restoration.

We ended the night with snacks and fellowship. The response to the music was fantastic, and we’re getting to know some great women. Looking forward to tomorrow...
