Well, he came and he’s gone – but we certainly know he was here! Mark Driscoll packs a punch. What did I especially appreciate about him? His straightforwardness. Nothing hidden and no hiding, so, like the Apostle Paul, his forthrightness commended himself to our consciences.
This week I am hosting Together on a Mission here in Brighton. To keep up to date please see Adrian Warnock’s blog. Adrian will be live blogging from the conference.
The last time I checked, the Pope was still a Catholic, the death rate was still hovering at around 100% and the chances of getting Mark Driscoll to speak at a conference in the UK in 2008 were averaging at zero.
The vast camp with its massive tent housing 6,000 teenagers was bathed in sunlight when Wendy and I arrived. It was 32 degrees and everybody was extremely bright.
Bathed daily in glorious sunshine, the Newfrontiers conference held in Delden, The Netherlands, proved a great success.
My first entry comes from South Africa, where I will soon be speaking at our Cape Town Together on a Mission. Simon Pettit, whose sudden death left such a massive gap, used to host a similar conference here under the title Joy In The City and I look forward to meeting with hundreds of friends from churches across the city.
