Rain Down

Settled in at our host home for our visit to the Willow Creek Leadership Summit. It is wonderful that the willow members open their homes to vagrants like us. It really adds to our experience. Instead of living in a sterile hotel you get a chance to learn up close and personal about their actual experience at willow. How does normal every day people connect with this local church? You learn so much the good bits and the difficult bits.

We all went to downtown Chicago. It really is an incredible city with so much incredible architecture both the new and the old. It was extremely hot – 95 degrees. At one point Phil and Steve decided to join the many children enjoying splashing about in one of the fountains in Millennium Park. The highlight being when the water would fall like a waterfall from the top of a tower. The result 2 very wet people. They did however dry out after walking around in sun for a couple of hours.

Made me think of the Delirious? song rain down. “Can’t you see the earth is singing, Rain Down. God refresh my life again so I can refresh others with your “living” water. I am thirsty for your rain Lord.
