I have the honor of spending three days with a group of guys whom I've met with for 14 years now. Thanks to Kurt Kinney's birthday, we are now all over 50. We have come to cherish these days together. We love to laugh and solve the world's problems. We rejoice in each others victories, and pray through each others pain. We don't see eye to eye on everything, but we are passionate about the common important things: family, church, prayer, leadership, etc.
I have learned so much from these men. The wells of understanding go deep with these guys.
I freely admit that sometimes I just throw out a topic just to see the fireworks begin. We can go from passive to passion in as much time as it takes to take a sip of coffee.
We are all very busy in our season of ministry, so creating space in our calendars is a challenge, but it's never a question of whether or not we should.
Thank you Larry Hickey for calling us together many years ago.
Let the fun begin!
