  • 6:03 PM: CWmedia @dancathy Thanks for the 2nd mile talk from Saddleback Worship Conference today.
  • 6:40 PM: Lori Biddle The workshop with Bob Kilpatrick was so amazing I cannot even describe it! FANTASTIC! God calls us to lay down our lives – take up our cross and follow him! As incomplete sculptures we don’t want to be formed into the creation God, as the ultimate artist, wants us to be…. we are His workmanship – this is a creative expression… watch for his new book out this year

  • 12:54 PM: Lori Biddle Pastor Rick is teaching right now, of course it’s amazing. He is saying the “purpose driven book” is in the Guinness book of records. When the book hit the stands and became the best selling book for 3 years! Annointed! All of a sudden Rick was getting invited to speak to kings, presidents and even other religous leaders. Despite all of this he has only one job – “to love his enemies and to speak about Christ and nothing more”…people are often critical of his success. But he has only one focus – spread the gospel!
  • 12:58 PM: Lori Biddle A well known reporter asked him, “what is your salary”. He was able to say he served his church for free for 25 years, because he had returned all of his salary when the book became successful. The reporter didn’t know what to say when he was able to tell her that…she has become a friend of Rick’s through the years. Integrity – wins people over for the Kingdom!
  • 1:03 PM: Lori Biddle The people that loved Jesus were the outcasts. Jesus had no problems with the outcasts only from the religious people of his day. If we have a healthy, effective, life changing ministry – we WILL be criticized by the RELIGIOUS community! (Well, we must be doing something right at Crossroads, because only the ‘formerly churched’ attenders at our ministry are critical, as well as local pastors) Cool!
  • 1:05 PM: Lori Biddle Integrity, humility and generosity are what Pastor Rick asks people to pray for all the time. He encourages us all to pray for that in our lives and in the life of our ministry!
  • 5:20 PM: Lori Biddle Sitting in Carlos Whitakers class right now, I need to learn so much! He’s a great teacher and this is one of the workshops I’ve been looking forward to the most!
  • 5:59 PM: Lori Biddle Kind of working backward but, I also had the privilege earlier this morning to attend Debby Rettino’s Lessons from the Jesus Movement: What we can apply today…this workshop moved my heart. As a panel of guests all described how they were affected by the Jesus movement, they talked in detail about Jesus changing their lives. They talked about how this generation needs a revival and a blessing from our generation, and I found it very, very applicable to our own ministry. This group of old friends created many albums during the Jesus movement and later created the very popular Psalty character that changed another generation.
    So cool!
  • 6:53 PM: Lori Biddle

  • 7:42 PM: Lori Biddle They just gave out a free Taylor and Martin guitar, IPod and free drum lesson with Sheila E! Of course I didn’t win one…but, I am not bitter…ok maybe a little…
  • 7:43 PM: Lori Biddle Now Paul Baloche is up – great worship!
  • 8:33 PM: Lori Biddle In closing Rick Muchow just asked everyone to write anything that may be holding them back from being fully committed on a card and carry it to the cross.
  • 8:34 PM: Lori Biddle I have enjoyed talking with all of you so much, but must sign off and say goodbye for now. God bless!
